Govt should

HYDERABAD: TJAC  chairman Kodandaram demanded that the government should make public the detailed project reports (DPRs) of all the irrigation and drinking water projects taken up by the government. “The DPRs should be released and only after that should the contracts be given. They should be uploaded on website,” he  demanded.

On the criticism by cabinet ministers who questioned the very existence of TJAC, Kodandaram said, “Why should they speak about TJAC if there is no such thing?” On the harsh words used by the ministers, Kodandram quipped, “We have a small dictionary (of words). The words in our dictionary are people and their problems only.”  On land acquisition, he said it should be done as per the Land Acquisition Act 2013 and not based on a GO issued by the government.  ‘‘We will organise a seminar in Gajwel to create awareness among the people about the projects and land acquisition,’’ he said.

TJAC on TS issues

High Court Bifurcation:

We demand early bifurcation of HC and also support the ongoing fight of Telangana advocates and judges on allocation of judicial officers. It is a strange situation that judges are fighting for justice. All local JACs will extend their support to the agitation of advocates and judicial officers.


State universities yet to get vice-chancellors.

The TJAC is opposed to the use of police for verification of private institutions. This is also violation of High Court verdict which asked police not be part of verification.

Sugar factories should be revived.

Govt should change the manual to assess the drought situation and extend assistance
