Telangana Protests Continue, Activist Succumbs to Burns

Pro-Telangana agitators under the aegis of Telanagana Joint Action Committee Sunday held protests in several districts of the Region against the delay in carving out a separate state. The Protestors laid siege on the houses of MLAs and obstructed public meetings and programmes in which elected representatives were taking part.

In Medak, state Information and Public Relations Minister and leader of the house in the Assembly, Geetha Reddy abruptly left a function after the JAC agitators held a protest demanding resignation from congress leaders.

In Nalgonda town, tension prevailed when a group of students attacked CPM MLA J Rangana Reddy near Jilla Parsihad Office. The situation was brought under control after police resorted to a baton charge to disperse the agitators. Students pelted stones at the MLA’s vehicle demanding his party’s support for Telangana and his resignation.

Andhra Prades Congress Committee (APCC) President D Srinivas has appealed to the students not to resort to the Suicides and destroy their future on the statehood issue as the Congress Government is committed to carve out Telanagna state. Stating that the Srikrishna Committee had been appointed to look into the matter scientifically, the PCC president has asked students to keep the facts before the committee.

Meanwhile, an uneasy calm prevailed on the Osmania University campus, where protesting students fought pitched battles with the police on Saturday.

19-year-old, Yadaiah, a pro-Telangana activist, who set himself ablaze on the campus Saturday succumbed to burns at a city hospital. His body was taken to his native village in the Ranga Reddy district.
