T-JAC wants people to hold peaceful protests
Express News Service,: 10 Jan 2010
HYDERABAD: The Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) urged the people in the region to organise meetings, padayatras and programmes with the local elected representatives to impress upon the Centre the need to make an announcement on Telangana at the earliest.
The JAC would organize bus yatras to further consolidate the Telangana forces and supporters.
Speaking to Express, JAC convenor M Kodandaram said in the entire Telangana region students, employees and other sections of the society have been continuing their protests and rallies peacefully.
“The idea is to make people understand that it is not enough to support the Telangana issue. They should send a strong message to the Centre through their elected representatives on how dear the cause is to them. People have already been continuing various programmes on their own,” he said.
Kodandaram was confident that the Centre would not go back on its December 9 declaration. After Home Minister P Chidambaram’s meeting with the representatives of the recognised political parties from the State, the Telangana leadership was confident and hopeful that the Centre would not go back on its promise.
“We are going to wait for some more time till the Centre comes out with a concrete policy on the issue. We are not against consultations but want a time-bound road map,” Kodandaram said.
On the reports that State’s incharge Governor Narasimhan had submitted a report to the Centre that the T movement was being supported by the Maoists, Kodandaram said the Governor should look at issues and movement launched by people for a genuine cause based on the aspirations of the people. “He should not assess things as a police officer. As Governor he is the Constitutional head of the State,’’ the JAC Convenor remarked.
