Civil societies take up voter awareness campaigns

Adilabad: Not only political parties but also civil society groups like ‘Telangana State Democratic Forum’ (TSDF) and ‘Jago Telangana’ have also intensified their awareness campaign among the public about the major political parties and their policies ahead of the Assembly elections in the state.

The members of TSDF were sensitising the voters by interacting with motorists, pedestrians, elderly people, women, the unemployed, vendors, hawkers and walkers at public places by distributing pamphlets, apart from conducting awareness meetings.

Armed with a team of cultural and folk artistes, the forums and societies were trying to expose the false promises of political parties and the importance of voting irrespective of caste creed and religion without inducements, with their songs and dramas. The team of TSDF, which has covered 23 Assembly constituencies out of selected 60 across the state so far, was touring districts explaining about the various schemes being implemented in Telangana and the country by TRS and BJP in the last nine years. They also took out ‘Voterla Chaithanya Yatra’ which covered Adilabad and Nirmal districts on Saturday.

Retired IAS officer Akunuri Murali and retired justice Chandrakumar, retired Prof. Padmaja Shaw and Prof. Vinayak Reddy and activists Nirmala and Muneeroddin of ‘Khair-E-Ummad’ and others took part in the awareness campaign.

TSDF’s convenor Akunuri Murali is explaining the lapses and corruption in the welfare and development schemes of the BRS government and how it affected the state exchequer. In the same breadth, he criticised the BJP-led Central government for showing injustice in allocating funds to the state.

The TSDF, Jago Telangana, which are against the divisive and communal politics in the country and the state as well, urged the voters to exercise their voting right wisely for a true people’s government.
