Expressing ire against the Congress high command for dilly-dallying the Telangana issue yet again, protests were held in ten districts on Saturday. Led by BJP national vice-president Bandaru Dattatreya, party activists staged protests with black flags at RTC X Roads on Saturday. Saffron party activists burnt UPA'S effigy and decried centre's attitude towards the issue. Members of Telangana Students JAC staged dharna at Gandhi Bhavan in Nampally.
Raising slogans against the Central government, students alleged that it lacked the commitment to resolve the issue. They demanded Congress ministers and legislators from Telangana to tender resignations immediately or face severe backlash from the public. Similar protests were seen in Mahabubnagar district. While BJP and TRS activists staged protests wearing black badges in Wanaparthy, saffron party supporters staged rasta-roko in Narayanpet.
