Students under the aegis of the Samaikyandhra Vidyarthi Joint Action Committee (SVJAC) burnt a multi-headed effigy of Telangana protagonists, including senior BJP leader L.K. Advani on the Deepavali day.
The students, led by SVJAC State co-convenor Rayapati Jagadeesh dubbed Mr. Advani and other key leaders of the Telangana movement, including KCR, KTR, and Kodandaram as ‘Narakasuras' before setting ablaze the effigy with eleven heads at the HCM College grounds.
They also raised slogans against Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram for his December 9 statement, which caused political uncertainty in the State.
They wanted the Centre to come out with a clear statement before November 1, the State formation day, to keep the State unified for the overall development of all regions.
