Scores of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) workers and its students' wing members took out a motorcycle rally from Warangal railway station to Kazipet railway station demanding Telangana Congress leaders to vote in favour of no-confidence motion.

The TRS wanted the Telangana Congress MLAs to pull down the State government by supporting the no confidence motion moved by the TDP, as the Congress failed to keep up its promise of giving separate Telangana State.

The rally was led by former MLA T. Rajaiah, a former Congress MLA who recently joined the TRS and resigned for his Assembly membership. Hundreds of students of Kakatiya University and other private educational institutions took part.

The Students JAC leaders said they would take the responsibility of ensuring the victory of all the Telangana Congress MLAs if they brought down the government. “We will go door-to-door and see that all those MLAs who resigned for the cause of separate Telangana are elected,” said K. Vasudeva Reddy and others.

The students said those who do not support the cause of separate Telangana would have to face the ire of people. They said they would not allow the Congress MLAs to move in villages if they failed to utilise the opportunity to bring down the government that went back on its promise of creating separate Telangana State.

Meanwhile, the members of Telangana Advocates Association staged a demonstration at the Congress Bhavan and urged the Telangana Congress MLAs to support the no confidence motion moved by the TDP. “The Congress MLAs are not asserting themselves even as the Praja Rajyam MLAs are doing it. It's a shame,” the advocates said.

Opportunity for leaders

Nizamabad Staff Reporter writes: TRS and its students wing TRSV took out a rally from Phulong to NTR Chowrasta urging the Telangana Congress MLAs to vote for the no- trust motion. Speaking on the occasion, TRS district president Alur Ganga Reddy said that it was an opportunity for the Telangana Congress MLAs to overthrow the government, which proved itself to be against the formation of the Telangana State.

He said if the Telangana Congress MLAs had any sincerity over the cause of the Telangana and respect for the youth, who sacrificed for Telangana, they should vote for the no-confidence motion.

‘Introduce T-bill'

Nalgonda Correspondent writes: The Telangana Students' Joint Action Committee (TSJAC) on Monday demanded the legislators from the region to vote in favour of the no-confidence motion. The demand was put forth by the TSJAC leaders Pidamarti Ravi, Rajaram Yadav, Charan Kaushik Yadav, while addressing a ‘Poru Garjana' organised by the student body.

Balladeer Gaddar was the chief guest. Telangana Political JAC leaders G. Venkateshwarlu and G. Amarender Reddy were among the speakers.

The student leaders also demanded immediate introduction of the Telangana bill in the Parliament and withdrawal of the cases registered against the agitators, including the preventive detention of TRS Polit Bureau member Cheruku Sudhakar.

Gaddar said the Centre should immediately introduce the Telangana bill in Parliament in deference to the wishes of the people of the region. He favoured withdrawal of police forces from Telangana and dropping of all cases against the agitators.

Earlier, students of various colleges in the town marched to Clock Tower to take part in the ‘Poru Garjana', which was a show of strength by youth to press the statehood demand.
