Telangana Joint Action Committee chairman M. Kodandaram has said that there was considerable progress in Telangana issue following the visit of TRS president K.Chandrasekhar Rao to New Delhi.
Without elaborating further, Mr. Kodandaram told media persons that there was nothing wrong in Mr. Rao camping in New Delhi to lobby support for separate Telangana. He had every right to do so, as it did not amount to back-door politics. Mr. Kodandaram was speaking after a delegation of JAC visited the BJP office to thank its leaders for their support to Telangana March on September 30.
‘No case against leaders’
He said the police had booked 45 cases in connection with the March but what surprised him most was that none of the political leaders were booked. This was despite the fact that hundreds of youth committed suicide for the cause of Telangana after naming the leaders in the suicide notes. It showed that property loss and not loss of life was taken seriously.
BJP State president G.Kishan Reddy demanded withdrawal of cases by the government and said that it was not because Telangana activists were scared to appear in courts, but the government had lost a moral battle. He said violence during the March took place only on those routes where police forces were posted. The Advocates JAC chairman M. Rajender Reddy also spoke.
