TJAC Shanti Deeksha begins
Telangana JAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram has sought the co-operation of Seemandhra community for smooth demerger and maintenance of peace in the state. He appealed to the Telangana public to be extra vigilant in the wake of conspiracies by a few sections to disturb peace between both regions in order to spoil the process of formation of a separate state.
Hyderabad: Telangana JAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram has sought the co-operation of Seemandhra community for smooth demerger and maintenance of peace in the state. He appealed to the Telangana public to be extra vigilant in the wake of conspiracies by a few sections to disturb peace between both regions in order to spoil the process of formation of a separate state.
TJAC kick-started a week-long ‘Shanti Deeksha’ at Indira Park on Monday with a demand to expedite the formation of Telangana. Noted academic Chukka Ramaiah, leaders Ch Vidyasagar Rao, Nagam Janardhan Reddy, K Tarakarama Rao, Suryam, K Govardhan besides TJAC steering committee members G Deviprasad, C Vittal, Addanki Dayaker, Pittala Ravinder took part. Even members of Jai Andhra organisation took part and extended their solidarity to the TJAC programme.
Kodandaram felt that the general public of Seemandhra were being misguided by creating unnecessary apprehensions on issues of river waters, jobs and Hyderabad. T JAC passed three resolutions namely creation of Telangana consisting of 10 districts, Hyderabad to remain an integral part of Telangana and introduction of a separate state Bill in the ongoing monsoon session of parliament.
Earlier, addressing the gathering former MLC Chukka Ramaiah pointed out that after separation both Telangana and Seemandhra states could develop because of abundant natural resources. “People led from the front in Telangana movement and political parties had to follow them. However, Telangana politicians should play a pro-active role, and ensure good leadership and governance in the future,” Ramaiah said. Telangana decision was irrevocable since two major national parties (Congress and BJP) had come out in support of statehood demand, observed former union minister Ch Vidyasagar Rao. Efforts should be made to form a Social Telangana, he felt.
Sircilla legislator K Tarakarama Rao made it clear that neither Union Territory nor joint capital status for Hyderabad would be acceptable to the Telangana public. Even MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi had informed that he would join the fight against the Centre if Hyderabad was transformed into UT. The arguments of TRS and TJAC that thousands of Seemandhra staff had grabbed postings in Hyderabad by brazenly flouting rules were now exposed with the ongoing stir in Secretariat and various other government departments here, KTR observed.
