Hyderabad: The Telangana Students Joint Action Committee on Sunday warned the state government that the state may witness another `Million March’ if it goes ahead with conduction recruitment examinations for Sub-Inspector’s posts in the police department without getting the controversial Clause 14 F deleted from the Presidential Orders of 1975.

The students JAC leaders told media persons that the state government can only go ahead with holding the recruitment examinations for the Sub-Inspectors only after the Centre deletes the controversial Clause.

The students’ leaders demanded that the government announce its decision on the issue before August 12, a day prior to the schedule announced for the conduct of examinations.

The students will call for a 48-hour long bandh on August 13 and 14 in Telangana, paralyzing all services, if the Centre fails to take favourable decision on deletion of the said clause, the students’ JAC members said.

Besides this, the students leaders revealed that they are postponing the Telangana bandh from August 8 to August 10 due to some unavoidable reasons. Earlier, the Joint Action Committee postponed its earlier call of a Telangana bandh from August 5 to August 8.

However, they said that they would boycott classes on Monday in protest against suicide of Srikanth, a JNTU student, who ended his life on Saturday.

The students’ leaders also declared that they would hoist the Telangana flag in all district headquarters in the region on August 15 along with the National Tricolour.(INN)
