Hyderabad, Feb.11 (NSS): The Telangana Advocates Joint Action Committee has called upon the advocates from the Telangana region to abstain from the court work from February 17, wherever the Seemandhra Judges are working, including the Greater Hyderabad and the High Court.
“This was part of the non co-operation movement against the Centre and the State government and to pressurise them to introduce a bill in the Parliament for the creation of separate Telangana State in the ensuing Budget session itself”, said the JAC convenor, Mr M Rajender Reddy, while speaking at a press conference here on Friday.
Mr Reddy said that the JAC has decided to submit a memorandum to the Prime Minister, Mr Manmohan Singh, through the Governor, Mr E S L Narsimhan, demanding the Centre to introduce the Telangana Bill in parliament.
In this connection, the JAC would hold “chalo Rajbhavan” programme on February 21, he stated and requested all advocates of the region to turn out in large numbers and make it a grand success.
The co-convenor of the High Court, Ms G Jyothi Kiran assured all possible legal help on behalf of the JAC, to all sections if they land in any trouble as part of their active participation in the non co-operation movement. Referring to the “Rachchabanda” programme, she alleged that the Chief Minister, Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy was squandering huge public money in crores of rupees for his futile purpose.
Pointing out the cane charge at the “Rachchabanda” programme in Karimnagar, she said that the police had mercilessly canned many innocent people, including women. She demanded that fitting action should be taken against those police personnel responsible for it and also said that they would file cases against them.
Other co-convenors, Mr G Mohan Rao, Mr N Prahalad, Mr J Lingaiah, the president, Metropolitan Criminal Courts, Mr D Raji Reddy and the president, City Civil Courts, Mr P Vidya Sagar Reddy, were also present. (NSS)
