Hyderabad: The virtually non-existent
Telangana Political Joint Action Committee has decided to
undertake a yatra across the region as part of its efforts to
keep the agitation for a separate state alive.

The 10-day yatra will be launched at Vikarabad in
Ranga Reddy district on March 9 and cover major parts of the
region, according to JAC Convenor M Kodandaram.
"All the legislators who quit their posts in protest
against the terms of reference set for the Srikrishna
Committee and JAC leaders will take part in the yatra,"
Kodandaram told reporters here today.

"We will not let the movement for a separate state die
down and we will intensify in all forms. This yatra will be
part of our efforts in that direction," he added.

The JAC Convenor found fault with the Congress
decision to contest the forthcoming by-elections in the
region, caused due to the resignation of 10 TRS MLAs and one
each of BJP and TDP.
‘This is unethical,’ he said referring to a statement
made by Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee president D
Srinivas. Kodandaram demanded that all cases registered
against the Telangana agitators be withdrawn immediately in
line with the promise made by Union Home Minister P
Chidambaram.
