The Lok Satta Party will launch a signature campaign in the Twin Cities to demand that the Government take all measures including installation of a surveillance network, introduction of community policing and modernization of the police machinery to shield Hyderabad from terrorist attacks.

The Working Committee of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) unit of the party, which met here today with Mr. Dosapati Ramu, President in the chair, decided to carry on a public awareness campaign for a month beginning with a candle light rally on Saturday night to mark completion of 100 days of the Dilsukhnagar blasts.

Addressing the Working Committee, State Lok Satta Party President Katari Srinivasa Rao said that the Government has failed to identify and arrest culprits responsible for the blasts so far. It has not even lived up to its promise of installing CCTVs at all public places. In response to a Lok Satta representation the other day, the Chief Minister maintained that the subject was still under study.

The GHMC unit also decided to study whether closure of any of the 92 Government schools in the city would inconvenience students and take up the matter with the Government.

It decided to launch a membership enrollment campaign until August and hold division-level elections subsequently.
