Activists owing allegiance to the CPI (ML-New Democracy) and its frontal organisations torched an effigy of the Central government here on Thursday accusing it of adopting delaying tactics in the name of justice Srikrishna committee to undermine the separate Telangana movement.

The protesters also formed a human chain at Yellendu cross roads here resenting the recommendations of Justice Srikrishna panel and demanding introduction of a bill on separate Telangana in the ensuing session of the Parliament to pave the way for statehood for Telangana.

The Telangana Rashtra Samiti activists also burnt an effigy of the Central government at Mayuri centre.
