The agitation called by the Samaikyandhra Joint Action Committee against the Centre’s decision to divide the state evoked lukewarm response even as the police cracked down on scores of activists across the district. Leaders and several other people have been taken into preventive custody since July 30.

While life was abnormal and daily schedules were affected in Kurnool district as commercial establishments were closed and public transport did not operate. Banks and government offices were also affected.

Government employees came out from their houses as usual in the morning but did not attend duties. They participated in agitations like rallies, dharnas, human chains, relay deeksha camps etc, from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. Some of them met and discussed about Samaiyandhra till late evening.

Private employees have been attending work regularly but some of them were forced into the agitations due to pressure from their bosses.

The students of government schools and colleges did not attend schools but some of the private educational institutions ran partially. Some students of both private and government educational institutions participated in the agitations when their managements organised the protests.

Youth and businessmen have formed JACs.
