Sea of humanity – Tearful farewell to Kodela


Did former Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao die like ‘Palnadu Tiger’ living upto his popular name? Huge crowds packed the streets for Kodela funeral procession in Narasaraopet town. His followers, fans and TDP activists arrived from all over the Guntur district. They bid a tearful adieu to the sensible leader who fell victim to insensible politics. Followers recalled how Kodela fought and rooted out blood-thirsty factions in Palnadu region but eventually lost his life to the same factionists imported from infamous Pulivendula.

AP Police were shocked at the huge turnout for Kodela last journey. They imposed restrictions but the fans and greatly mover people entered the town boldly to have a last look at their leader. Seeing the surge of emotions, the ruling YCP Ministers and MLAs have fallen dead silent today. CM Jagan master plan to blame TDP internal groupism has failed. TDP followers squarely blamed Jagan’s witch-hunt vendetta and mindless police cases for Kodela suicide. Kodela fans are now confident that Jagan and the police officers concerned will now face it in the people’s court. Chandrababu Naidu took part all through Kodela last journey.
