The management of the Rayalaseema Thermal Power Plant responded in a positive way to the 'Deeksha' by a large number of farmers led by YSRCP MP Avinash Reddy.
The farmers of several villages around RTPP launched an agitation seeking jobs to the the family members who lost their lands for the power project.
YSRCP MP YS Avinash Reddy and MLC Narayana Reddy extended support to the protesters.
The RTPP-displaced farmers demanded that 99 jobs should be given to local persons before January 1. The management of the RTPP agreed to their demand and asked the MP and farmers to call of the strike.
Avinash Reddy sat on Dharna when the management failed to respond to the farmer's protest.
