ABVP approaches Andhra High Court to hold Telangana rally
Hyderabad, Jan 22 (ANI): The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), on Friday approached the Andhra Pradesh High Court to get permission to hold a students rally to press for the creation of separate Telangana state.
The ABVP is planning to hold the rally here on Saturday. The Hyderabad Police Commissioner has denied the permission to hold any such rallies.
The ABVP, which is a part of sangh parivar argues that it has a democratic right to hold public meetings and hopes the court would allow it to hold the same.
The ABVP plans to mobilise a huge crowd of students from different parts of Telangana region for the meeting named 'Vidyarthi Ranabheri' to be held at Nizam College grounds, which is likely to be addressed by Lok Sabha Opposition party leader Sushma Swaraj.
Several pro-Telangana political parties and organisations have urged the State Government to permit ABVP to hold the meeting.
On January, 3, the high court had allowed students of the Osmania University to hold a similar meeting on the condition that no political leaders and pro Maoist intellectuals should not take part in the rally. (ANI)
