The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee has declared that it will organise Chalo Assembly on June 14.

A decision to this effect was taken at the steering committee meeting of TJAC here on Wednesday.

The TJAC and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) have already announced that they will organise the programme. The date was finalised at Wednesday’s meeting which was attended by TJAC chairman M Kodandaram, TRS president K Chandrasekhara Rao, TRS MLA E Rajender, BJP state president G Kishan Reddy, BJP senior leader Ch Vidyasagar Rao, conveners of various JACs and other prominent Telangana leaders.

Speaking to reporters later, Kodandaram said that the budget session of the  Assembly would commence on June 10 and the TJAC decided to organise Chalo Assembly on June 14. In preparation for the protest  TJAC would organise an intensive campaign  from June 1. “We will touch every household in Telangana region. The TJAC will organise meetings from June 10 to mobilise the people,” he added.

“Rulers from Andhra region are repeatedly hoodwinking the Telangana people on formation of separate Telangana state. This is the right opportunity to lakhs of Telanagan people to gather in Hyderabad to press their demand.”

Kodandaram said that TJAC leaders would form into groups and go to districts to create awareness among the people on the “prestigious” Chalo Assembly progarmme which, he said, would be organised in a peaceful and democratic manner despite any repression by the government.

He requested the government to allow people to register their protest and participate in Chalo Assembly. Even if the government tried to suppress the programme, the TJAC would organise it in a peaceful manner, he asserted.

Sources said the TJAC decided to mobilise around 5 lakh people from all over the region. Sources said the strategy on mobilising people _ whether to gather all the protesters at one place and proceed towards the Assembly or to call upon people to reach the Assembly individually _ would be decided later.

Initially the TJAC had wanted to conduct the programme on June 17 but advanced it on suspicion that the  government may conclude the budget session within six days without giving the TJAC a chance to organise the protest.
