Prof. Kodandaram urges voters to elect leaders committed to Telangana
Hyderabad: The Telangana Joint Action Committee (T JAC), which tried to reach out to the Congress top leadership in New Delhi last week for a quick solution to separate statehood issue, hardened its stand on national party once again. The organisation which held an extended meeting at a private function hall in city outskirts on Tuesday, felt that the Congress cannot be trusted until it took a concrete decision. Briefing the mediamen, T JAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram smelt a rat behind Congress high command's decision to seek two road maps (one for bifurcation and other for keeping the state united). Recalling Congress party's several attempts to put the issue in cold storage, he said, "There cannot be two roadmaps for solving a single issue.
All this high drama for the last few weeks would be perceived as an attempt to deceive the public, if Congress did not make a statement on separate statehood before the commencement of Panchayat elections," Kodandaram said. T JAC chief urged the electorate in ten districts of Telangana to back those candidates who were sincerely participating in the separate state movement for the last few years in the upcoming Panchayat polls.
He informed that the decision to boycott Congress leaders from entering villages from July 4 onwards was put on hold, temporarily, because of the election code for Panchayat elections. There would be many restrictions on government employees in view of the elections and hence the boycott programme has been postponed, Kodandaram pointed out.
'Jana Chaitanya Yatra' by T JAC from July 17
Hyderabad: Telangana JAC (TJAC) has decided to embark on a five-day 'Jana Chaitanya Yatra' from July 17. This yatra would be flagged off from Martyrs' Memorial, Gun Park on July 17 morning.
It would proceed through Medak, Nizamabad, Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Khammam, Nalgonda, Ranga Reddy to finally reach the State capital. Signatures in support of statehood and meetings in colleges would be conducted as part of this yatra. Prof. Kodandaram and other members of the TJAC are expected to take part.
