TRS raises pitch on Telangana ahead of bypolls
PTI, 25 Jun 2010 06:07:10 PM IST
HYDERABAD: Asserting that there will be a “great war” after the Srikrishna Committee on Telangana submitted its report by December-end, TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao today asked students and other Telangana supporters to be prepared for it.
“A great war will be inevitable after December. We have to keep our weapons sharp. Weapon is building a strong party organisation. Party leaders said they would enroll 10 lakh members. If these 10 lakh come onto the streets after December, can the government function?” he said, addressing the executive committee meeting of the party’s student wing.
In a bid to mount pressure on the Centre towards granting separate Telangana, TRS would employ various “democratic means” to bring the government machinery to a “standstill”, the former Union Minister warned.
“We have to organise ourselves to realise our final goal of Telangana. Not only students, I am talking to various sections. They said they will be ready once we start the agitation,” he said.
“They said no government employee would go to office, no advocate would go to court, drivers of public transport buses would not report for duty. Even cars of district Collectors and SPs would not run. We can pile up pressure on Centre that way,” Rao asserted.
Seeking to corner the ruling Congress and main Opposition Telugu Desam ahead of the next month’s bypolls in Telangana, Rao hit out at the two major parties for their decision to contest the elections.
“Initially, they said they are ready to sacrifice their posts for the sake of Telangana. But they changed colours later. Only sincere MLAs of TRS and one each from BJP and TDP quit their posts. Now, they are out to defeat us in the bypolls. They should be ashamed of their complete political bankruptcy,” he said.
“Only students have the power to teach a lesson to the “traitors of Telangana”, he stated.
The TRS chief asked the students to tour Telangana region to build up a strong organisation for the party.
The student leaders should make an appeal to the youth in Telangana villages not to commit suicides to show their commitment to statehood movement, he added.
