Hyderabad: Telangana Joint Action Committee chairman Prof M Kodandaram on Monday said they would continue their protest in the future also if the government denied permission for staging protests at Dharna Chowk.Addressing a press conference along with CPI State secretary Chada Venkat Reddy and CPI (M) State secretary T Veerabhadram on Monday evening, Kodandaram said, “We expect that the permission given today was a permanent one. Otherwise, we will take up the protests in future also.”

Kodandaram said the JAC was clear in its demand. “We have clarity on what we want. We want Dharna Chowk to continue and the right to protest,” he said. Responding to the criticism that he was talking at the behest of the Congress leaders, Kodandaram said he would meet any leader to fight for the rights of the people. “To save democracy, we are confident that we can take forward a strong agitation united,” said Kodandaram.

Kodandaram said the JAC wanted the government to talk with all stakeholders and come out with a solution. If there are issues, then the government should hold talks and resolve them, he said adding that the JAC had approached the Governor, the Home Minister, the DGP and others before taking up the protest.

He said the Walkers Association also had no intension to oppose the Dharna Chowk. He said that one of the association members Sudhakar, who participated in the dharna, said that the resolution of the Walkers Association did not say anything about removing the Chowk. Even the colony residents also had no objections, added Kodandaram.

Venkat Reddy said the Ministers had no right to talk on the Dharna Chowk issue. He said the JAC had applied for permission a month ago but there was no response from the government. He said there was no need to take the comments of Ministers seriously. “Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had said he would cut his head if he failed to make a Dalit Chief Minister of Telangana.

Did he stand by his words? No, he did not. So there is no need to take them seriously,” said Reddy. Tammineni Veerabhadram asked the government to arrest them if they were goondas. He asked Naini Narasimha Reddy to talk and behave like a Minister.
