Hyderabad: The indefinite general strike called by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) continues to affect the normal life as it entered its tenth day on Thursday.
Reports, Thursday, claimed that the civic administration in ten districts that make up Telangana region has collapsed with public transport coming to a halt and normal business having been suspended.
Schools and colleges remain closed and exams for over 30 lakh students have been postponed since Sep 13- the day Telangana JAC called for an indefinite strike.
Power cuts due to declining coal production and sanitation failure has made the normal life worse as over 4 lakh employees in all sectors have boycotted work.
The state government has since invoked a no-work, no-pay rule but it has failed to deter those who have boycotted work to protest against the delay in the creation of a Telangana state.
Telangana Rashtra Samiti president K Chandrasekhara Rao (KCR) has also threatened a fast-unto-death if Centre further delays any announcement regarding Telangana. KCR also threatened that all Telangana MPs will resign if the Centre does not take a decision by September 30.
