TJAC To Block National Highways

The Telangana Joint Action Committee, spearheading the movement for separate Telangana state, has decided to intensify the agitation to bring pressure on the Centre to expedite the Telangana process.

As part of that, the TJAC called for blockade of national highways. While there would be a complete blockade of Hyderabad-Bangalore national highway on February 24, the Hyderabad-Vijayawada national highway would be blocked on March 2. Both the blockades would be held for 24 hours with Telangana activists resorting to cooking and eating on the highways.

The TJAC also called for bus yatra from Shamshabad to Alampur on the Bangalore highway for two days – on February 11 and 12. And on the Vijayawada highway, the TJAC called for bus yatra from Hayatnagar to Kodad on February 27 and 28. TJAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram appealed to the people of Telangana to make both the programmes a success.
