The JAC would also hold round-table meetings in one district after the other to mobilise public support to their agitation.

“Starting from Srikakulam, the JAC will spread to all parts of the state. There would be round-table conferences in Eluru, Amalapuram and Rajahmundry. By this month end, we shall have Amaravati JAC branches in the two Godavari districts,” he said.
