Hyderabad, February 27: Hours after Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao detailed plans for a massive ‘Chalo Hyderabad' rally and consequently bandh in the city on March 10, the Telangana joint action committee (TJAC) which gave the call for the programme realised the mistake as the Intermediate exams were to commence the previous day and announced its rescheduling. JAC chairman M. Kodandaram told The Hindu that a final decision on the fresh date would be taken by the steering committee of the panel on March 2.

Addressing a mass hunger strike by employees and teachers of Intermediate education at the office of its board here on Saturday, Mr. Rao christened the programme as ‘million march to Hyderabad' and said it would be held in a manner that not a soul would be able to move around in the State capital on that day. Lakhs of people from Telangana districts would camp on the city roads to see that not a vehicle moved. It would be another day of total bandh, Mr. Rao said and invited approval of the gathering by voice. He also said the demand for the programme and implementation of “Mallesh formula” were voiced by public supporting separate Telangana.

Mallesh, driver of TRS floor leader in Assembly Etala Rajender, landed in jail after beating up Lok Satta MLA Jayaprakash Narayan on the Assembly premises ten days ago. Referring to the exam season ahead, Mr. Rao said the JAC was well aware that disturbing the schedule would jeopardise the career of students.

The leadership will act with utmost responsibility in protecting the interests of students. The programmes would be finalised “strategically” taking into account timing and circumstances.

Appeal to traders

He warned of a general strike by government employees if they were victimised for participation in the non-cooperation movement and promised to them a special increment after the formation of the State. He appealed to traders and businessmen to support the staff financially if the government stopped payment of salaries.

Telangana TDP forum convenor Nagam Janardhan Reddy and BJP State president G. Kishan Reddy expressed solidarity with the striking employees.
