Left parties in AP may intensify stir over power tariff hike
Hyderabad: Members of Left parties in Andhra Pradesh, who began an indefinite fast against the power tariff hike, on Sunday warned of intensifying their stir if the state government failed to "respond positively".
CPI state secretary K Narayana and his CPI(M) counterpart B V Raghavulu, who started the indefinite fast yesterday, demanded that the government immediately roll back its move to hike power tariff and stop collecting the fuel surcharge adjustment.
They said that the Congress government should not be stubborn in its response to the demand to relieve the burden imposed on common men.
The Left parties also organised rallies and sit-ins at several places in the state today over the power tariff hike.
The main opposition Telugu Desam and other parties also expressed their solidarity with the indefinite fast by the Left parties.
