The Indur Vidyarthi JAC members launched a signature drive in support of separate Telangana state, here on Saturday.

They are planning to collect one lakh signatures from people in the district to be submitted to the government to convey the people’s support for the cause.

The student JAC leaders began the campaign by formally taking the signature of BJP town president Dr. J. Bapu Reddy.

Appreciating the students’ effort, Mr. Reddy exhorted them to wage a relentless fight until the separate Statehood was achieved.
