Hyderabad: Accusing the Centre of being
insensitive to the separate Telangana demand, TRS president K
Chandrasekhar Rao today said the statehood agitation would be
intensified after `Sankranti` festival this month.
"It is unfortunate that the government is insensitive to
our agitation. We have blocked roads, did fasts and a
prolonged strike. However, we will intensify the agitation
after `Sankranti` festival (mid-January)," he said.
The political Joint Action Committee (JAC) would meet
either on January 18 or 19 and prepare an action plan for the
future, he said.
The JAC comprises TRS, BJP, the pro-Telangana employees
of Andhra Pradesh government and several other people`s
The pro-Telangana employees, who struck work for over 40
days last year, are ready to go on strike again, he said.
The TRS president was speaking after releasing a diary of
the Telangana private sector employees association.
Claiming that Telangana people were not getting job
opportunities in the private industries in Hyderabad and
elsewhere in the region, he demanded that 90 per cent of the
jobs be given to natives.
TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and Kadapa MP Y S
Jaganmohan Reddy, who belong to non-Telangana regions, were
undertaking visits to the Telangana region only to weaken the
separate statehood agitation, he claimed.
