Warangal: The activists of the CPI(M) have staged a protest here on Saturday demanding the Centre to move back the crew links to Kazipet from Vijayawada immediately. They have also asked the BJP-led Union government to set up the coach factory at the Kazipet junction at the earliest to generate employment for the youth.

The leaders of the Hanamkonda district committee led by District Secretary M Chukkaiah have staged a dharna at the Ambedkar Chowrasta holding placards and raising slogans against the step-motherly treatment meted out to Telangana State by the Centre.

Speaking on the occasion, Chukkaiah has flayed the Railway higher authorities for the recent shifting of the crew links of the loco pilots, assistant loco pilots and guards to Vijayawada causing much inconvenience to the staff. “We demand the Railway authorities to immediately shift the crew-links to Kazipet immediately,” he said and warned that they would intensify their agitations if the demands were not addressed.

CPI (M) district secretariat committee member Teluri Uppalaiah has sought to know why the Warangal MPs ‘were not mounting pressure’ on the Centre to sanction coach factory to Kazipet and also see that the junction is announced as the Railway Division.

“The TRS MPs must fight against the BJP government at the Centre and see that the coach factory set up here,” he added. Party leaders Godugu Venkat and others called upon the people to support their agitation and achieve the coach factory.

“The Centre must allot sufficient funds in the Winter Session of the Parliament for the periodic overhauling (POH) unit in Kazipet announced in 2016 at an estimated cost of Rs 480 crore. An Electric Traction Training Centre (ETTC) should also be established here,” the CPI (M) leaders added.
