TPJAC Performs Last Rites Of Assembly
The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (TPJAC) leaders performed the “last rites of the dead A P State Assembly” on March 17th.
18th Mar, 2011: Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (TPJAC) convener Prof. Kodandaram on Thursday stated that the TPJAC will intensify its agitation for a separate Telangana state and mount pressure on the Centre.
Talking to media persons, Prof. Kodandaram stated that a meeting of the JAC leaders will soon be convened to plot a course of action to further the struggle for a separate state.
The meeting will take into consideration the Centre’s stand that it would take up the Telangana issue only after the completion of the assembly elections in 5 states.
Political observers say that the meeting would try to find a way to keep the interest of pro-Telangana activists sustained, and the momentum continued, till the Assembly elections are over.
Prof. Kodandaram stated that the TPJAC will announce the calendar of the agitations that they would take up until May. He also said that the JAC will conduct awareness campaigns at village, mandal and district levels, and prepare the activists for the next phase of agitations.
“The agitation for Telangana will be intensified in a phased manner till the objective is achieved,” he stated.
Meanwhile, following his call, TPJAC co-convener Mallepalli Lakshmaiah and Doctors’ JAC chairman Narsaiah performed the “last rites for the dead Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly” at a burial ground at the Jubilee Bus Station in Secunderabad.
They stated that the last rites for the Assembly were performed as the House had failed to discuss the Telangana issue in the Budget Session. However, no elected representatives from the TRS or the BJP participated in the conduction of the last rites.
They alleged that the Congress had cheated the people of Telangana yet again by not fulfilling its promise made in its 2004 election manifesto.
They demanded that the Congress stand by the announcement of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on December 9, 2009.
They also appealed to the Telangana Congress elected representatives to join the Telangana leaders and make a united effort for the formation of a separate state.
