Hyderabad: Thousands of students took out rallies across Telangana in support of their demand for separate statehood.

Raising slogans for separate Telangana, the students of schools, colleges and various universities in towns like Warangal, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda and Medak participated in the rallies and formed human chains.

They demanded that the Centre take immediate steps for formation of Telangana state.

The rallies were organised as part of the agitations called by the Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) after the en masse resignations of MPs, MLAs and MPs cutting across party lines over the separate state demand.

The JAC had organised a shutdown on July 5 and 6. It had planned to organise 'rail roko' on July 8 and 9, but the protest has been postponed as a meeting of all public representatives, who have quit their posts, would be held soon to discuss future course of action.

The JAC currently comprises TRS, BJP and a number of people's organisations.
