The Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday declared that his party would launch a protracted agitation against the recent Supreme Court order declaring Hyderabad as a free zone for recruitment of policemen.

At a press meet here, Mr. Rao said, the agitation would be two-pronged. “We mean no disrespect to the Court but because it concerns the emotions of lakhs of people from Telangana, we shall file a review petition. On the other hand, we will chalk out an agitation programme all over Telangana region,” he said.
