Nalgonda: Accepting that the deadline of June 25 for the elected representatives from the region to resign has passed and the Telangana Political Joint Action Committee has not acted against the Legislators who had not heeded the deadline, TPJAC convenor M Kodandaram on Sunday said that the agitation for Telangana is currently subdued due to the demise of its ideologue Professor Kothapalli Jayashankar.
However, Prof Kodandaram warned the elected representatives that there was no question of extending the deadline the TPJAC had set.
“The is no change in the deadline set for elected representatives from Telangana to resign from their posts as the Centre has not announced a clear statement on Telangana state yet,” he told media persons at Chotuppal in Nalgonda district.
“The TPJAC’s activities have been subdued due to the demise of Telangana ideologue Prof K Jayashankar. We will resume, and in fact intensify our agitation for Telangana after a reasonable time, in homage to Professor Jayashankar,” Prof Kodandaram promised.
He hastened to point out that all agitational programmes, announced earlier, would begin from July 3.
The separate Telangana spearhead took the opportunity to reiterate his demand that the state government conduct the recruitment test for the posts of Sub-Inspectors of police only after the Clause 14 (F) is deleted from the Presidential Order.(INN)
