Telangana bandh on December 30
The joint action committee (JAC) comprising TRS, Congress, TDP, BJP and other organisations met in Hyderabad on Sunday and decided to intensify its agitation for a separate Telangana state. The JAC had given a call for a one-day bandh on December 30 in all the ten districts of Telangana region.
The JAC convener Prof Kodandaram said all the MLAs who had resigned will soon meet Speaker N Kiran Kumar Reddy and insist that the resignations be accepted. By this the parties wanted to create a constitutional crisis forcing the Centre for speedy action on a separate state for Telangana.
The JAC demanded that the Centre initiate constitutional process immediately for Telangana state and also fix a time-frame for completing the bifurcation of the state.
