Hyderabad: The Telagana Political Joint Action Committee has decided to observe the Andhra Pradesh Formation Day on November 1 as 'Betrayal Day'.

Talking to reporters after a meeting of the JAC, its convener M Kodandaram said Telangana supporters would hoist black flags at various places on that day.

"The formation of Andhra Pradesh is betrayal for us," Kodandaram said.

The pro-Telangana public representatives of various parties, who have quit their posts, would sit on a fast, he said.

The duration of the fast would be decided soon, he said.

TRS and BJP public representatives are likely to sit on the fast, which leaders of other parties might also join.

Alleging that false cases have been registered against Telangana supporters during the 'sakala janula samme' (general strike), the JAC demanded that all the cases be withdrawn.

JAC has been organising the strike since September 13 and several sections of government employees have withdrawn from the stir, though some major unions like Telangana Non-gazetted Officers' Association still continue with it.
