The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (JAC), comprising TRS, BJP and various pro-Telangana organisations would launch a strike from Wednesday in support of the separate statehood demand.
The Telangana supporters would hold a rally from the Sundaraiah Vignana Kendram to Indira Park in Hyderabad and hold a dharna there, JAC Convener M Kodandaram told reporters on Tuesday evening.
The strike by all sections of people envisages government employees striking work (from September 5) while others taking up different forms of protests, JAC leaders said.
The JAC leaders would undertake district, mandal and village level meetings from Thursday to gear up the people for the strike.
The JAC had earlier announced that the Andhra Pradesh government employees in Telangana, who are supporters of the JAC, would begin strike from August 17. It later announced that the strike of the employees would begin from September 5.
Replying to a query, the JAC Convener slammed the ministers from Telangana region attending the Cabinet meeting held at the Chief Minister’s Camp office.
He said the JAC would stick to its demand that the Congress and TDP MLAs from Telangana resign from their posts and the ministers stay away from official duties. [Express News Service]
