Hyderabad: Against the backdrop of the
Telangana agitation, Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council on Friday
appealed all parties and leaders to help in conducting board
examinations of intermediate and 10th class in a peaceful
atmosphere.

"The intermediate and 10th class exams are going to start
from March 7. This House unanimously resolves that all parties
and leaders help in conducting the exams as per schedule in
view of the students future and the concern of the parents.

"The concerned officials and leaders of various parties
should observe restraint and cooperate to conduct the
examinations in a peaceful and uninterrupted manner. This is
to ensure a golden future for the students. We appeal to the
people of the state and especially the media to do their bit
to conduct the exams," a resolution passed by the Council
said.

The appeal by the Council came in the wake of Telangana
groups organising agitations in support of the separate
statehood demand.

The Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) has
called for `million march to Hyderabad` on March 10 and there
has been concern expressed by parents and teachers that the
students would not be able to write their exams peacefully as
a million people would reach the city on the day.
