With the Sakalajanula Samme entering the second day, coal production in Singareni Collieries was hit as nearly 69,000 employees and workers boycotted their duties, which have an impact on power generation at NTPC Ramagundam. There may be power cuts in the state.
The strike called by the T-JAC is near total in Warangal, Karimnagar, Medak, Nalgonda, Nizamabad and Adilabad districts and partial in Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy, Khammam and Mahbubnagar districts.
For the two-day bandh by the Telangana film chamber, 160 theaters in Hyderabad remained closed and 300-odd film theaters in nine districts were shut down.
TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao said that Sakalajanula Samme will continue until Telangana statehood is achieved.
