Hyderabad: TRS on Sunday threatened to observe a
Telangana bandh on August 5 if the Andhra Pradesh government
goes ahead with the written examination for recruitment of
sub-inspectors without deleting a clause which makes the city
a free zone for recruitments in the police department.
"I once again appeal to the Chief Minister (N Kiran Kumar
Reddy). Even Congress leaders from Telanagna region demand
postponement of the SI exam. If he is still adamant and wants
to go ahead with the exam then various agitation programmes
will start, and on August 5 we will observe Telangana bandh,"
party president K Chandrasekhar Rao said.
TRS has been demanding that the exam should be held after
deleting clause 14 (F) from the Presidential Order, which
allows candidates from non-Telangana region to be recruited.
According to Rao, the party will observe protest rallies
on August 2, burn effigies of the Chief Minister and Director
General of Police on 3rd and arrange an all party meeting on
the 4th to appeal Reddy once again.
"If he does not heed to our demand even then, we will
call for a bandh. If the government does not agree even after
that, then we do not know what will happen on the exam day,"
