Hyderabad: Telangana Political Joint Action Committee has called for Telangana Bandh on July 22, ”for violation of Telangana Martyrs rights and for imposing Essential Services Maintenance Act on the Telangana employees, who are going for strike from August 1.”
According a statement released to media, the TPJAC called for Telangana Bandh in protest against government fascist attitude and for violating the employees’ rights.
The TPJAC’s allegation that the government has violated the rights of Telangana Martyrs came in light of reports that the state government has refused permission to take the body of Yadireddy, who committed suicide for the cause of Telangana in New Delhi, in a procession in Hyderabad.
The statement said that Telangana Rashtra Samiti, Telangana Congress, Telugu Desam Telangana Forum, Telangana People’s Front and breakaway group of Telugu Desam headed by Nagam Janardhan Reddy have extended full support to the Telangana Bandh.
The TPJAC called upon students, employees and Telangana activists to participate actively in the bandh and make it a grand success.(INN)
