Gadar refuses to contest Warangal by-polls

Revolutionary poet Gadar on Monday declined the offer made by Left Parties to contest the by-elections for Warangal Lok Sabha constituency.

Gadar rejected the offer stating that his candidature needs to be debated. Meanwhile, representatives of different ST, SC and Minorities organisations and some students of Osmania University called on Gadar to convince him to contest the by-elections. During the meeting, which lasted for an hour, the organisation said that the TRS Government has been implementing anti-people and anti-farmers policies and the weaker and poorer sections of the society did not benefit from the formation of Telangana State.

Speaking to media persons later, Gadar said that he had no intentions to enter the electoral politics at this juncture. However, he said he would continue to create awareness among the people through non-political forums. (INN)
