HYDERABAD: The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of political parties, employees, students and different Telangana organisations have planned to give a call for an indefinite bandh in the Telangana region, if the Centre fails to come out with a clear statement on separate Telangana issue by December 28.
“There is no bandh tomorrow. We appeal to the people to hold peaceful protests as they deem fit,’’ the JAC leaders clarified.
At the first meeting of the Telangana Joint Action Committee, formed yesterday, TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao is understood to have mooted a proposal to fix a deadline for the bifurcation of the State.
The JAC also planned to send a draft proposal to the Prime Minster with clear cut words on Telangana issue.

Leaders of MRPS and Mala Mahanadu also attended the meet.
The two proposals, indefinite bandh and sending a draft letter to the Prime Minister along with the resignations of MPs and MLAs, were put forth by Chandrasekhara Rao. “These two moves would help the movement to achieve its goal,’’ the TRS chief emphasised.
Congress leader R Damodar Reddy and several others, in principle, agreed to the proposals of the TRS chief but they said a final decision would be taken in the coming days. Several other leaders also expressed the same opinion.
Meanwhile, the JAC strongly condemned the attack on TDP leader N Janardhan Reddy and appealed to TDP leaders from Telangana region to join the committee to strengthen the agitation.
Giving a call to the people to continue the movement across the region by respecting democratic system, the JAC said it would announce its action plan on Monday.
JAC demanded the State Government to lift all the prohibitory orders imposed in Telangana. They demanded the State Government to withdraw police and parliamentary forces deployed across the region.
Stating that it is impossible to suppress the movement by force, they warned that the people would revolt against the Government in such a case.
Congress MP Madhu Yashki Goud said all party MPs from Telangana have impressed upon the party high command on the need to grant separate statehood to Telangana.
“Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said the December 9 resolution is not being diluted. Veerappa Moily has also clarified. We have asked the high command to implement the Dec 9 announcement in letter and spirit,’’ Goud said. yderabad, December 25 The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of political parties, employees, students and different Telangana organisations have planned to give a call for an indefinte bandh in the Telangana region, if the Centre fails to come out with a clear statement on separate Telangana issue by December 28.
