WARANGAL: Expressing dissatisfaction over the way TRS government was functioning under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Gummadi Vittal Rao, popularly known as Balladeer Gaddar hinted that he would be floating a political outfit which would unite all the deprived classes soon and come to power in 2019.
He is understood to have decided to name the new political outfit as Thyagala Telangana (Telangana Sacrifices). He also called upon people to go to villages and educate them about the wrongdoings of the present government and the need for deprived classes to unite and come to power.
“There is an urgent need to bring ‘vote’ revolution in the state to establish peoples’ rule. We should use our vote to capture power rather than helping others to rule us. We should educate people to use their votes judiciously.
We cannot allow a few individuals to decide our future forever. We have fought for Telangana to establish peoples’ rule, not that of doras. We have to bring revolution from the grassroots level to overthrow the people in power,” he remarked.
Speaking at a function organised by Mahajan Samaj to honour the family members of those who laid down their lives for the cause of Telangana statehood here on Monday Gaddar stated that the present government had totally failed in fulfilling the aspirations of the people of Telangana.
“People have not laid down their lives for this Telangana where the people who did nothing for getting statehood are enjoying the power and those who sacrificed are struggling. We do not want this Telangana. We want such a state where everyone has equal rights and opportunities,” he said.
Gaddar, who floated Telangana Praja Front in 2010 and fought for separate Telangana state by organising cultural and political meetings across Telangana region, said that the time has come to bring revolution from grassroots level and dislodge the classes ruling the state. “Nothing has changed after the formation of Telangana. Only rulers have changed. Everything is the same. Poor are still suffering and rich are enjoying the fruits of statehood,” he said.
He said that if the people of Telangana do not take steps to bring changes in system, the state would end up like Chattisgarh, Jharkhand and Uttrakhand, where no development has taken place after its formation.
