Hyderabad: Opponents of Telangana chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu and YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy will not be allowed to enter the region once the third phase of the movement for separate state begins on May 14, TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao threatened on Thursday.
Announcing the plan for the third phase of T agitation, KCR said: “These three leaders have adopted double standards on the Telangana issue. They are barred from visiting the Telangana areas until they come clean on the issue. Opponents of Telangana have already tasted the wrath of the people during the second phase of agitation. If they try to tour Telangana now, the experience will be even more bitter,” he said.
As part of the movement, the TRS plans to organise rasta rokos across the region on May 14, dharnas at all mandal level offices on May 19, dharnas outside collectorates on May 25 and a 24-hour statewide rail roko on May 30. On May 23, a large public meeting of students would be held. Apart from these, flash strikes will also be taken up with the support of other Telangana organisations, the TRS chief said.
Claiming that there were no differences between Telangana political JAC chairman M Kodandaram and himself as being reported in the media, KCR said the Telangana JAC will announce its action plan in coordination with its partners including the TRS next week. The JAC is planning a 48-hour siege of Hyderabad in the first week of June.
In the third phase of agitation, the TRS will also oppose the demolition of establishments in Sultan Bazar to make way for the Hyderabad metro rail project, KCR said, and demanded that the state government change the alignment of the metro rail project and protect the historical business centre and other heritage monuments like temples, masjids and other religious place in that area.
Demanding the chief minister to lead an all party delegation to New Delhi to sort out Hyderabad free zone issue by deleting 14F section in the Presidential Order, he said TRS will obstruct the recruitment exam for SI posts in police department if the matter is not resolved. KCR threatened that the state government would face dire consequences if it attempted to reinstall the vandalised statues on Tank Bund without installing the statues of Telangana icons.
In the state executive, KCR said six resolutions were adopted including demanding that the government announce Chevella-Pranahita project as a national project and provide MSP to paddy farmers immediately. TOI
