Hyderabad: The pro-Telangana agitation would
continue till a bill is passed in Parliament for the formation
of a separate state, all-party Telangana Joint Action
Committee (JAC) said here today.

"The agitation will continue till a bill for the
formation of separate Telangana state is passed in
Parliament," JAC convener C Kodandaram told reporters during a
human chain organised in the city.

The human chain was formed from L B Nagar in Hyderabad to
Kodada in Nalgonda district as part of the week-long protests
being organised by the JAC.

"The objective of the human chain is to show that the
people of Telangana are united in demanding the separate
state," Kodandaram said.

Telugu Desam Party legislator M Narasimhulu said the Sri
Krishna committee appointed by the Centre to go into the issue
should be only for the formation of separate state.

The Centre has appointed the five-member committee,
headed by former Supreme Court judge B N Srikrishna, but its
terms of reference have not yet been announced.

The JAC organised community kitchen on the Hyderabad-
Warangal highway and also Adilabad district highway yesterday.
The week-long protests would continue till February 7.
