HYDERABAD: Around one million Telangana people will besiege Hyderabad on March 10 and stay put till the Centre announces a T state, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K Chandrasekhar Rao has said.
Addressing employees of the Intermediate Board, who have been participating in the non-cooperation movement, at the Board office here today,
the TRS chief said on March 10, the city would reverberate with ‘Jai Telangana’ slogans by one million people who would reach here from across Telangana and would not go back till the Central government made a statement on the Telangana issue in the Parliament.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would act as per the wishes of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. She had the remote control and this was proved in the Lok Sabha when the TRS and NDA members stalled the proceedings in the
House on T issue, the TRS chief said.
“When Opposition leader Sushma Swaraj cornered the Prime Minister on the T issue by explaining that four lakh government employees were
not attending duties as part of their non-cooperation movement, the Prime Minister did not speak a single word on the T issue,” the TRS chief alleged.
“We want to demonstrate people’s wish to the UPA chairperson. So we decided to lay siege to Hyderabad,” he said. Telangana people
would not get justice in United Andhra Pradesh. “All the problems of T will be
solved only in a separate Tstate,” Rao declared.
The TRS would give one special increment to all government employees once the T-state was formed, which would be a Telangana increment,
