Telangana million march begins as thousands brave police ban
Deccan Chronicle, March 10th, 2011

Hyderabad: Braving massive presence of police and paramilitary forces and violating ban orders, thousands of people, demanding separate statehood to Telangana, reached Tank Bund in the Andhra Pradesh capital for the ‘million march’.

Raising slogans of ‘Jai Telangana’ and holding flags of various parties, the activists reached Tank Bund from different directions, though the police had sealed all the surrounding routes for vehicles.

The protestors broke the police barricade and removed the barbed wires at Ambedkar statue and were heading towards the road along Hussain Sagar Lake. The policemen deployed there were outnumbered by the protestors.

“The future of coming generations is more important for me than my examination,” said a student who reached Tank Bund immediately after writing Class 11 exams.

The protestors included students, political workers, employees and others from Hyderabad and various districts of Telangana. (మరింత…)

The million march, aimed at sending across a message to the Centre on formation of Telangana, is scheduled to be held from 1 pm to 4 pm at Tankbund at the Hussainsagar lake in the heart of the city.
