OU students defy JAC, threaten to foil IPL
Express News Service: 28 Jan 2010

HYDERABAD: In defiance of the stand taken by Telangana Joint Action Committee of politicians, the students of Osmania University have reiterated that they will stall the Indian Premier League-3 (IPL-3) until an announcement on separate Telangana is made.

The decision was taken by the students on a day when political JAC convener Kodandaram appealed to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and the president of Hyderabad Cricket Association to reconsider the decision to shift the venue of the inaugural of IPL-3 from Hyderabad to Mumbai.

Members of Telangana Research Scholars Forum, which is part of the joint action committee of students, today burnt the IPL in effigy after going in a procession from the PG Hostel to the Arts College on the university campus.

Raising slogans against IPL, the students said `Cheer girls meeka, chitimantalu maaka?’, ‘Maaku vishaadama, meeku vinodama?’

They also displayed placards which read ‘We do not want IPL entertainment. We want Telangana’. (మరింత…)
