The Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) has declared that if the Congress-led UPA government did not declare a Telangana state by January 28, the TJAC will intensify Telangana movement by taking up serious agitations.
The TJAC steering committee which met here on Saturday discussed the political situation in the state and took stock of the ongoing developments at the Centre and also in the Seemandhra region.
In order to continue exerting pressure on the Centre, the TJAC announced that several protests would be organised till January 24, including a 36-hour Samara Deeksha at Indira Park on January 27.
The TJAC was preparing an action programme in consultation with the leaders of its constituents -- TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, BJP state president G Kishan Reddy and CPI-ML New Democracy secretary V Suryam.
The TJAC leaders urged the Telangana leaders of the Congress, YSRCP and TDP to force their party high commands to take disciplinary action against the Seemandhra leaders who were trying to prevent Telangana statehood by building pressure on the Centre.
The Telangana movement had reached a decisive stage and the leaders of the Congress, TDP and YSRCP should participate in the movement to prove their T credentials. “People of Telangana are closely observing the attitude of the politicians and those who limit themselves to showing lip sympathy without any serious commitment to the Telangana cause will have no future,” the TJAC leaders said.
