The Rail Roko, Palle Palle Pattala Paiki, organised from 6am to 6pm yesterday by T-JAC, TRS, BJP, CPI and other pro-Telangana groups has paralysed the train movement in Hyderabad and the nine Telangana districts.
The South Central Railway has cancelled 25 trains and rescheduled another 18 trains. The MMTS service in Hyderabad was off the tracks.
The protests also badly hit the movement of trains between south and north India. Trains from Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore and other cities to Delhi and other destinations in the north were stopped by the protesters.
T-JAC said that they may consider organising more Rail Roko agitations if the Union Government did not decide on introducing separate bill in Parliament for separate Telangana.
