Buses of state-owned Road Transport Corporation (RTC) went off the roads in all 10 districts including Hyderabad. Shops, hotels and business establishments were also shutdown in many parts of Telangana.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leaders sat in protest outside the RTC depots since early Thursday to prevent buses from coming out.
