KARIMNAGAR: Sircilla Joint Action Committee (SJAC) leaders on Friday took out a rally from Ambedkar Chowk to Revenue Division Office (RDO) to protest against the arrest of their leaders. SJAC protesters claimed that local leaders CH Ramulu, Annaldas Venu and Lingampally Sudhakar were being detained illegally and that false cases had been registered against them. They added that their single-point agenda was to make Sircilla a district. The protesters submitted a memorandum to the Revenue Divisional Officer at his office. JAC members singled out their MLA KT Rama Rao, accussing him of tyranny. They alleged that efforts were underway to thwart their 'democratic' movement. Protesters warned that by arresting their compatriots, the police were provoking them, which would only lead to intensification of their movement. SJAC believes that the state government deliberately included  Illanhakunta and Mustabad mandals in the proposed Siddipet district to keep Sircilla from becoming a district. The famed weavers of Sircilla staged a sit-in on Friday.
