The Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC), the TRS and the Telangana Nagara Samithi (TNS) have separately declared that they would  organise protest programmes during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit  to Hyderabad on Tuesday to protest against the delay in according statehood to Telangana.

The BJP extend its support to the TJAC's protest programmes. The announcement of separate protest programmes by the TRS and TJAC has once again brought the issue of the growing differences between K Chandrasekhar Rao and M Kodandaram to the centrestage and has become a point of discussion among the pro-Telangana groups.

The TRS leadership has decided to organise a dharna by its MLAs at Indira Park on Tuesday from 10.30 am till evening. Key leaders of the party and many activists would also join the protest.

TRS legislator T Harish Rao alleged that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was reluctant to spend much time in Hyderabad and was also avoiding travel by city roads as he was wary of facing the wrath of Telangana protestors. Telangana Nagara Samithi leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy said his organisation would also observe protest programmes at Indira park on Tuesday.

The TJAC would hoist black flags and leave black balloons into air to express their protest at Indira park. The TJAC called upon the people of the twin cities to wear black badges to express their protest.

TJAC chairman prof M Kodandaram said that they were preparing a new action plan on the Telangana agitation and only after finalising it would they conduct the steering committee meeting.
