Says similar path will be followed to achieve future demands

Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao has said that the victory of students in getting the written test for recruitment of sub-inspectors of police postponed had set a good precedent to resolve problems of Telangana.

“The same path will be followed in all issues from now on”, he said referring to the agitation by students from Telangana which forced the government on the back foot with regard to the conduct of the test.

Mr. Rao was addressing a meeting at the party office here. He criticised the counter agitation in Andhra-Rayalaseema districts against the postponement saying it lacked moral base.

The students of that region could not stomach Home Minister P. Sabita Indra Reddy's assurance to postpone the test by twenty days.

“What was the great urgency in twenty days when the test was getting postponed since 2008?”, he asked.

How was unity possible between people of two different regions in these circumstances? It was also clear from their stand that they themselves want separation.

Mr. Rao alleged that it was at the behest of leadership from Andhra- Rayalaseema region that the government got ready to conduct the test with Hyderabad as free zone. Former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy too conspired to make Hyderabad free zone by appointing a lawyer from Gujarat to argue the case in Supreme Court.

He also said he had forewarned Chief Minister K. Rosaiah not to delay follow up action on the Assembly resolution as it could have adverse impact.

Yet, the latter delayed matters leading to trouble.

Responding to demands of sanitary staff of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, he said he would lead an agitation for regularisation of their residential quarters.
