With the struggle for Telangana entering a decisive stage, Telangana political Joint Action Committee is gearing up to build pressure on the Central Government. Demanding the Centre to introduce Telangana Bill during monsoon session of Parliament, the JAC has decided to intensify the movement in parts.
The campaign kicks off with carrying out funeral processions of Telangana leaders who were yet to resign from their posts. This was announced to be July 22. Elected representatives who did not give in to the Telangana political JAC’s pressure include deputy chief minister D Raja Narasimha, ministers M Mukesh Goud and Danam Nagendar, MP Sarve Satyanarayana, legislators Marri Shashidhar Reddy and T Jayaprakash Reddy.
On July 25, Telangana activists would remove the name Andhra Pradesh from all sign boards across the region, said Political JAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram. He added that it would be replaced with the word Telangana.
The succeeding program will be laying siege to all national highways that pass through the region. The JAC plans it for the first week of August. The siege in Telangana region would affect traffic on NH-9, NH-7, NH-16, NH-202 and Rajiv Rahadari . Nearly 86 employee associations have already expressed their support to this cause.
Simultaneously, the TJAC steering committee meeting also decided to target the economic and business interests of Seemandhra leaders if they did not stop spreading canards in Delhi about the Telangana movement.
