Hyderabad: The Telangana Joint Action
Committee (JAC) on Friday said the political parties from Andhra
Pradesh should not be ambivalent on their stand on the
separate Telangana demand at the meeting convened by the
Centre on January 6.
"TRS, BJP, CPI and CPI(M) are clear on their stand.
Congress and TDP should also be clear. They sent two
representatives to an all-party meeting convened earlier this
year by the Centre and voiced two opinions. That should not
happen again. Whatever is their stance, it should be clear,"
JAC Chairman M Kodandaram told reporters here.
The JAC, comprising TRS, BJP and a number of people`s
organisations, would announce its plan of action after the
January 6 meeting. The meet was convened by the Centre to
discuss the Srikrishna Committee report and the way forward on
the seperate statehood demand.
The JAC Chairman appealed to people to undertake
various forms of protest till January 5 to express their
demand for formation of Telangana state.
People should send SMSes and representations to their
MLAs to get the parties to make their stand clear on the
Telangana issue, Kodandaram said.
Asserting that the Srikrishna Committee, which
submitted its report to the Centre yesterday, would not be
able to deliver Telangana, he appealed to statehood supporters
to observe restraint.
"People should not be carried away by emotions. They
should not resort to any unwanted things."
His appeal came in the wake of fears that untoward
incidents may take place after the Srikrishna report was made
