Rasta rokos on all the National Highways leading to Telangana have evoked an amazing response. Right from the morning no vehicles from Andhra or Rayalaseema were allowed to enter Hyderabad.
Telangana activists have blocked all the roads on the outskirts of the region. Thousands of people have come out in support of the rasta roko. Traffic came to a standstill for nearly 30 kilometers. Jai Telangana slogans echoed all along the highways giving momentum to the activists.
The NH-9 bringing traffic from Vijayawada and other Andhra districts is the most affected. Activists have set up temporary blockades at several places including Garikapadu check post, Kodad, Narkatpally-Addanki road. At Nagarjuna Sagar, activists staged a dharna protesting the arrest of Nalgonda JAC leaders.
Even on the Khammam and Kurnool highways the situation is no different. Telangana supporters have stopped all the traffic coming towards Hyderabad near Mahabubnagar. All over the outskirts of Telangana region thousands of vehicles have been blocked, literally cutting of the region from all sides.
