Telangana Students Joint Action Committee (TSJAC) has called for educational institutions bandh on Tuesday.
The call was given to protest what it alleged as ‘high-handed behaviour’ of police against pro-Telangana activists during a rally taken out by the YSR Congress Party honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma to highlight the problems of handloom weavers’ at Sircilla in Karimnagar on Monday. “We request the managements of all schools, colleges and educational institutions to remain closed and express their solidarity,” said TSJAC president P. Kailash Neta.
The TSJAC has asked students to burn effigies of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy for trying to suppress the agitation for separate Telangana State and derive mileage. “The Chief Minister in collusion with the YSRC planned the rally in Sircilla to create unnecessary tension in the region,” he alleged.
