Seeking the introduction of a Bill on the creation of separate Telangana state during the budget session of Parliament, the Telangana Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) along with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), BJP and CPI, is undertaking from today an indefinite non-cooperation movement. All T-associations and T-leaders from almost all political parties are participating in this agitation.
Normal life in the ten T-districts including Hyderabad is likely to be disrupted as around three lakh people working in various government departments, corporations, directorates, cooperatives, municipal bodies and schools would attend office but would not do any work.
The T-JAC and TRS have asked people not to buy tickets while commuting in buses and trains, and also not pay property tax, power and water bills. The movement is set to include blockades of national highways and railway tracks.
The non-cooperation movement will continue until the UPA government introduces the Telangana Bill in the Lok Sabha. The T-JAC and TRS have also given a call for an indefinite Telangana bandh from February 22 onwards.
