Staff Reporter

NALGONDA: TRS activists led by its district unit president Beeravolu Somi Reddy burnt the effigy of the States Reorganisation Commission (SRC) here on Tuesday.

The agitators raised slogans against the reported decision to constitute second SRC to study the feasibility to carve out a separate State for Telangana region.

After taking out a rally with the effigy, they burnt it on the road at Clock tower.

“The decision to constitute the second SRC is a ploy to dilute the demand for a separate State for the backward region,” Mr. Somi Reddy told reporters.

“Where is the need of such commission when 90 per cent of political parties openly declared support for the separate State demand,” he questioned, asking the Congress leaders to quit their posts and join the movement at this crucial juncture.
