YSRCP leader Jaganmohan Reddy started indefinite hunger strike today at his residence in Jubilee Hills Lotus Pond, without much fanfare. The party leaders failed to mobilise a sizeable people to make it a grand success. People in the city were not shown any interest in participating and expressing solidarity with Jagan on Samaikyandhra cause. Approximately about 1000 people gathered at Deeksasthal.
‘We are facing lot of trouble. We are afraid to mobilise Telangana people, as they may act otherwise after coming here. Seemandhra people are not willing to identify with Samaikyandhra movement any more, except few hardcore’ explained one leader from Dilshukhnagar.
‘It is surprised to see very few people here at Deeksha, while YSRCP leaders claiming all these days that 20 to 30 lakhs Seemandhra population is staying in Hyderabad. City people not enthusiastic to participate in Deeksha, while people from Seemandhra are unable to participate in it as total bandh is on’, a TV channel reporter saying in his live in programme.
There are allegations that some people were brought on hire to show some presence.
