Hyderabad: Ways to intensify the agitation
for Telangana state, including TRS`s call for an indefinite
bandh, were on Saturday discussed at a meeting here of leaders from
the region.

At the first meeting of the Telangana Joint Action
Committee (JAC), formed yesterday, TRS chief K Chandrasekhar
Rao is understood to have mooted a proposal to fix a deadline
for the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

The closed-door meeting of leaders belonging to TRS and
other outfits decided to continue the movement peacefully, TRS
sources said.

Telegu Desam, which had attended the inaugural meeting
of the JAC, stayed away from today`s meet in the wake of an
attack on a senior party leader in Osmania university
yesterday.

"There is no bandh tomorrow. We appeal to the people to
hold peaceful protests as they deem fit. We will speak to all
political parties and form a committee. As per the
recommendations of that committee, we will go ahead with the
agitation," senior Congress MLA R Damodar Reddy told reporters
here.

The future course of action will be decided by taking
stock of the situation in the state and at the Centre, he
said.
