The Telangana Joint Action Committee, which met at a farm house in Jubilee Hills decided the schedule for the next phase of statehood agitation.

Talking to the media after the meeting, TJAC Chairman Prof. Kodandaram said that the Sakala Janula Samme (Telangana general strike) was an extraordinary success and should have ideally resulted in formation of Telangana. “But, we have mindless leaders, who have turned into a curse for this country”. He explained the agitation strategy that the JAC would adopt in the coming few months.
On 31st of January, the JAC would conduct a dharna in front of all Collectorate office with a demand to lift all false cases against Telangana students and activists.
In February 1st week, the JAC would conduct the Telangana Sadhana Bus Yatra.

A mammoth “Udyoga Garjana” with about 5 lakh Telangana state government employees would be conducted in Kamareddy town in first week of March.
