Hyderabad: Telangana Congress leaders are likely to have a tough time in the coming days with TJAC deciding to up the ante against them. As a reciprocal gesture for not allowing Telangana activists from entering state capital for Chalo Assembly programme, the JAC has vowed to obstruct Congress leaders from visiting villages from July 4 onwards. The organisation warned of another round of Sakala Janula Samme for realising its long-standing dream.
Telangana JAC met for the first time here at TNGO Bhavan after the Chalo Assembly programme held on Friday. Besides steering committee members, key leaders from district associations took part. The meeting discussed at length about the future course of action and state repressive measures during Chalo Assembly. Later speaking to newsmen, Kodandaram informed that they would wage a legal battle (PIL) against illegal arrests, bind overs and police high-handedness on the eve of Chalo Assembly programme. He informed that TJAC would conduct a seminar with national and key regional parties in New Delhi during first week of July, and submit the meeting resolutions to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
TJAC set July 4 as deadline for Congress leaders to resign from the party and participate in the movement. Else, they should be prepared to face the wrath of the public, Kodandaram said. TJAC decided to observe Telangana ideologue Prof. Jayashankar's death anniversary (June 21) as 'Telangana Self-respect Day', he added. Sadak Bandh on Vijayawada route likely on Sept.17 Meanwhile TJAC is seriously considering to organise Sadak Bandh on Vijayawada route on September 17.
According to T JAC leaders, the Nalgonda district JAC would be consulted before finalising the date and the mode of the protest. Some leaders were in favour of converging at a single location on the Andhra-Telangana border village in Nalgonda district unlike the road-blockade protest on the Hyderabad-Kurnool route that was held along a stretch of 200 km. There was also talk of holding the protest during night time since most of the private operators would be plying buses during that time.
The TJAC in its post-mortem on Chalo Assembly, felt that except for a few leaders, activists of pro-Telangana parties did not participate in full force in the Chalo Assembly protest.
