More paramilitary forces for city
TNN | May 11, 2011

HYDERABAD: Apprehending another outbreak of unrest owing to the proposed re-launch of Telangana movement by various political parties, the state police has sought for deployment of at least 60 companies of paramilitary forces in Hyderabad and the other T districts over the next two weeks.

In response, the Union home ministry has sent 19 of the 27 central companies that were sent to Kadapa for poll duty while the remaining companies were dispatched to Tamil Nadu ahead of the counting of votes on May 13. A decision on the state’s request with regard to remaining companies is expected soon, state government sources said.

Before the Srikrishna Committee report was made public in January this year, the Centre had granted 60 companies of central forces to the state to handle the agitation. But they were re-deployed in five states which went to polls. (మరింత…)

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.
