Nellore: Having crossed the 60-day milestone, Samaikyandhra agitations are on full swing across Nellore on Sunday.

Resenting the lacklustre approach of the Congress towards the ongoing stir which has been apolitical throughout, Samaikyandhra activists continued their relay fasts, rallies and other forms of agitations across the district.

RTC JAC undertook a massive bike rally from the Current Office Junction to the RTC Bus stand. Wearing black badges, black ribbons and holding black flags RTC employees and representatives of the APNGOs raised slogans in support of Samaikyandhra all along the rally. Meanwhile the NGOs’ relay fasts reached the 49th day at Nellore.

On Sunday, employees of the Pay and Accounts department undertook relay fasts at the APNGOs relay camp at Darga Mitta Circle. Meanwhile, hundreds of employees led by the district secretary of the APNGOs Y. Ramana Reddy undertook a protest at the Current Office junction by tying flags around the idol of a farmer at the junction.

Meanwhile, former corporator Anam Jayakumar Reddy organised a Samaikyandhra meet at Nawabpeta which was attended by hundreds of activists. Speaking at the meet, Jayakumar Reddy lashed out at the Congress for flaring up the sentiments of the people of the state by making confusing statements.

He also lamented the Telugu Desam for not withdrawing the letter given by the TD for the bifurcation of the state. He did not even spare his own brothers and said in reference to them saying the Anam brothers may wear a hat (topi) if they want, but they cannot put a hat on the heads of the people.
