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 centre. It had grown very fast in the last decade and won the hearts of the toiling masses, workers and the middle class. Prajasakti forged ahead in an atmosphere when all progressive and democratic forces were facing an uphill task of struggling the onslaughts by imperialism. The second edition started in 1997 from Hyderabad, the third edition in 1997 at Visakhapatnam and the fourth edition in 2001 at Tirupati, the fifth edition in July 2003 and the sixth edition at Kurnool in November 2003, the seventh edition at Rajahmundry in May 2005, eighth edition in September 2005, the ninth edition at Srikakulam in 2006, and the tenth edition at Ongole in 2012.
Prajasakti is committed to the cause of oppressed people. At its very inception it was with the peasants' struggle in 1981. Prajasakti has always spearheaded the propaganda for secular and progressive values in the society. It strives for democratic values, and upholds the ardent struggle for democracy and a just living waged against the one-sided imperialist globalization. It comes out with a scientific analysis on all contemporary, national and international issues. Prajasakti stands for the projection of all the just values and relentlessly fights anti-peoples policies, corruption, communalism and many issues that make the life of poor and middle class worse.
