Regarding Godavari waters, Reddy alleged that the stand of the Telangana government is unclear over the distribution of waters.

The party’s state council meeting was chaired by the former member of the Council H Raji Reddy.  The party’s assistant secretary P Venkat Reddy and Chada Venkat Reddy have given the details of the resolutions.

Referring to the reduction of petrol and diesel prices Chada Reddy said that the reduction given by the central government is insufficient.  He said that the government had raised the prices exorbitantly first during the seven years rule and offered a minuscule reduction now. He demanded the central government to restore the petrol and diesel tax tariff prevalent in 2014.

Reddy announced his party would hold protests in response to a call given by the national party from May 27 to 31 demanding the Union government to bring down the petrol and diesel prices further and keep them at the old rates.

 The protest programmes shall be held at all mandal on May 27 and district headquarters on May 30 and in Hyderabad on May 31 to highlight the people’s issues and fight against the communal forces.
