The government employees from the Telangana region, who were scheduled to go on an indefinite strike from August 17, have postponed it to September 6.
However, the agitation for a separate Telangana state will continue. The Telangana Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) has decided to go on a mass agitation programme Sakala Janula Samme with a Maha Dharna at Indira Park on August 17. There will be a massive public meeting in Karimnagar on September 5.
The Telangana government employees, teachers and workers will join the agitation from September 6.
T-JAC steering committee head Prof. Kodandaram said that the change of schedule is a tactical decision and a strategy to intensify the agitation in phases.
