Adilabad MLA Jogu Ramanna and his supporters from Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Sunday staged a ‘rasta roko' on the NH 7 near Jamdapur crossroads thereby disturbing traffic movement on the busy road for about one hour.

They demanded the introduction of a Bill in the Parliament to carve out separate Telangana and withdrawal of cases against students who had agitated for separate Telangana.

As the protest was staged about 4 km away from Adilabad town near the bypass road, police did not come to know about it immediately. They could reach the spot after a lapse of about 45 minutes to clear the road for the traffic. Meanwhile, Kaveti Sammaiah, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MLA from Sirpur constituency led a protest at Kagaznagar. Demanding a Bill in the Parliament, he and others from TRS burnt the effigy of members of the Srikrishna Committee.
