Praja Shakti

Prajashakti also spelled as Prajasakti is a Telugu newspaper that is published in Andhra Pradesh, India under Communist Party of India (marxist) [CPI (M)]. It started as a daily newspaper in 1981 with Vijayawada as the centre. Currently it is being published with nine centres (or editions) at Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati (city), Khammam, Kurnool, Rajahmundry, Srikakulam, Karimnagar and Ongole. It has a wide network of over 100 primary news-gathering centers across the state.

Prajasakti has grown up in leaps and bounds and is now the largest circulated progressive daily among Telugu newspapers. On the 20th anniversary of Prajasakti, it went online and came much nearer to all those who are not within its reach in this global world.

Prajasakti was a borne child of the freedom struggle. It had its inception in 1942 and was published as a daily from 1945. No sooner it was subjected to repression by the British and was banned in 1948. It started again as a weekly journal in 1969 and took the form of a daily in 1981 with Vijayawada as the edition center.
