Polepalli SEZ victims file nominations to Jadcherla Assembly Constituency
Eleven candidates from Polepalli village have filed nominations today i.e. 9 May 2008 to protest the atrocities unleashed on the rural poor in the name of Special Economic Zone.
* Candidates who were not able to get caste certificates because of the non cooperating local officials had to pay Rs 5000 towards nomination fee while those who had caste certificates had to pay only Rs 2500. Local officials are creating hurdles and harassing the SEZ victims
More candidates are planning to file nominations on Saturday & Monday (10 & 12 May) if friends extend financial support at the earliest to meet the nomination fee
The campaign is planned to cover all villages extensively with local youth and farmers building public opinion against the sinister SEZ.
Campaign is going to be supported primarily by the people. However, some expenses like vehicles, fuel, drivers’ wages, posters, pamphlets, T-shirts with campaign slogans, etc need money
Requests financial support to meet campaign expenses and nomination fee of more candidates
