Vijayawada: There was high tension near Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s Camp Office on Monday as a large number of unemployed youth and students tried to lay a siege demanding filling up of vacant posts in various government departments.
As organisers of the demonstration had already intimated about their protest programme, a large number of police personnel had been deployed all along the routes leading to the CM’s Camp Office.
Many protesters had been taken into preventive custody while on their way to the camp office. Some leaders had even been placed under house arrest.
AP Pradesh Congress Committee president Sake Sailajanath condemned the arrest of unemployed youth and students. He said they were only protesting in a peaceful manner.
CPI state secretary K. Ramakrishna too protested against the arrests and wondered why the state government has taken two long years for releasing a job calendar with very few vacancies....
