Hyderabad: Telangana JAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram issued a stern warning to Congress Ministers and legislators from the Telangana region in view of government's crackdown tactics to obstruct the 'Chalo Assembly' programme. Elected representatives would face the wrath of T JAC constituent organisations and Telangana supporters if they visit villages as part of campaigning for upcoming local body polls, he said. Prof. Kodandaram and TJAC leaders G Deviprasad, V Srinivas Goud participated in 'meet the press' programme organised by Telangana Electronic Media Journalists Union (TEMJU) held here on Saturday. Speaking on the occasion, Kodandaram decried government for creating hindrances even to meetings by legislators from the region. He, however, informed that TJAC would convene a meeting on May 10 that would be attended by MLAs from TRS, BJP and Left parties. Kodandaram pointed out the onus was on the legislators to see that Kiran Kumar Reddy government does not create a tense atmosphere in the region. He reminded that TJAC was carrying out a separate state agitation in a peaceful and democratic manner for the last three years. Elaborating on Chalo Assembly, the TJAC chief informed that they would converge at Indira Park and proceed in a procession towards Assembly around 11 am. He stated that JAC does not intend to meet the Chief Minister, who is presently holding the Home Minister portfolio, regarding the Chalo Assembly protest. Kodandaram stated that government should be held responsible for any untoward incidents that might occur because of the oppressive measures adopted by it. He, however, vowed to ensure success of Chalo Assembly programme. Replying to a query whether leaders from other parties would be allowed to participate in the June 14 programme, Kodandaram said that it was up to them to attend. TJAC has no intention to send invites, he added.
