Hyderabad: The Joint Action Committee (JAC)
of students of Osmania University here today called for a shut
down in Telangana on September 5 to press their demand for a
proportional share for the region in the recruitment of
Group-I service officers.
The preliminary examination for the recruitment of
Group-I services is scheduled to be held on Sunday.
"We have three specific demands. One, the share of
Telangana should be decided on the basis of population. Two,
the Chairman of Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission
should be removed. Three, rule of reservation should be
followed from the stage of preliminary examination itself,"
Pidamarti Ravi, a leader of the OU students JAC, said.
The JAC claims that gross injustice has been done to
Telangana in the recruitment of the Group-I service officers.
Alleging that APPSC Chairman A Venkatram Reddy has been
"corrupt" and also did injustice to Telangana, the JAC
demanded his removal.
The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of TRS and other
people`s groups have extended support to the bandh call.
JAC Convener M Kodandaram told PTI that his committee
wants that the APPSC Chairman be "kept aside" and the
principle of reservation be applied from the stage of
preliminary examination itself.
