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.
