Left parties calls for Andhra Pradesh bandh on April 9

Leaders of Left parties have called for a State-wide bandh in Andhra Pradesh on April 9 to protest against the hike in power tariffs and the fuel surcharge adjustment. At a meeting of the leaders of these parties  on Wednesday, it was resolved to intensify the agitation, starting with protests in every mandal and district headquarters town across the State on April 1, culminating in a bandh.

Earlier in the day, all seven leaders of Left parties on a hunger strike for the past four days were discharged from Gandhi Hospital.

The Left parties’ leaders declared that they would not relent till the government realised its folly and came up with a people-friendly energy policy, also absorbing the entire burden of the FSA.
