Telangana row: JAC threatens to go on strike
Hyderabad: The Telangana political Joint
Action Committee (JAC) Friday threatened to launch a strike
from August 1 if the Centre failed to take steps for the formation of a separate state by then.
The leaders of JAC, comprising TRS, BJP and several
people's organisations, met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N
Kiran Kumar Reddy and informed him about their decision.
"The Chief Minister said he is neither supportive nor
against the Telangana demand and that there is nothing in his
hands," JAC Convener M Kodandaram told reporters.
He said people from various sections of the society in
Telangana would participate in the proposed strike.
The government employees' unions in Telangana had served
a notice to the Andhra Pradesh government yesterday stating
that they would strike work after August 1.
