- TNGOs chief ridicules strike by APNGOs against Centre’s decision
Hyderabad: The Telangana Employees JAC on Tuesday demanded the Centre to give the common capital status for Hyderabad only for three years. Voicing serious apprehensions over making the city the common capital for Telangana and Seemandhra for ten long years, the JAC called for a review of the decision taken by the Congress Working Committee to this effect.
While paying rich tributes to Telangana ideologue, late Prof.Jayashankar on his 79th birth anniversary at Gun Park, the Telangana Employees JAC vowed to fight against the attempts to sabotage the process of separation.
Speaking on the occasion, TNGOs president, Devi Prasad said that until Telangana bill passed in the Parliament, all employees will continue their struggle. He ridiculed the decision of APNGOs for going on strike in protest against the Central government decision on separate Telangana. “They will achieve nothing from resignations. Despite many assurances from JAC leaders, they want to go on strike. They are behaving as if their lives will be lost, if Acts providing undue favours are scrapped”, he said.
Emphasising that even T employees will be prone to scrutiny in the separate state, he said that government is not going to spread out ‘Red carpet’ to welcome them. According to him, the JAC will be commemorating the achievement of Telangana, with ‘Sadbhavana Yatras’, aimed at lowering anxiety levels of Seemandhra people. Srinivas Goud, president Telangana Gazetted Officers’ body said that the rally planned by Seemandhra employees is hurting the sentiments of Telangana people.
Assuring security to the population hailing from other regions, he said that no more they will be called ‘settlers’. Former MLA and Seemandhra Settlers’ Welfare Forum president, K Prasuna said that even though their roots were in Seemandhra, they supported the Telangana Statehood and will continue to stay in new State.
She questioned the logic behind holding together two regions in the name of single language. Senior journalist, Mallepalli Laxmaiah and Telangana Vidhyavantula Vedika general Secretary, Pittala Ravinder were amongst the prominent who paid tributes to Prof. Jayashankar.
