But it is for the first time in 10 years that such a poster has appeared in Medak district, which was once a hotbed of Naxalites.

The demands in the poster include free transport of silt from lakes to agricultural fields under the ongoing Mission Kakatiya programme, payment of pension to all beedi workers irrespective of the provident fund facility, and transparency in the distribution of land to STs, SCs and BCs in the state.
