Medhavula Padayatra & Homage for Tank Bund Statues

Several Telugu scholars, poets and political leaders today took out a ‘padayatra’ and offered homage to the statues of Telugu luminaries on the Tank Bund here, as a mark of protest over the vandalism during a pro-Telangana march last week.

As many as 16 of the 33 statues, installed on the Tank Bund during late NT Rama Rao’s regime, were vandalised allegedly by some mobs during during the ‘million march to Hyderabad’ called by pro-Telangana groups last week.
