Telangana agitation to intensify again

"In view of the year-end exams of students, we had intentionally slowed down the movement. But we have planned to give it a momentum once again, and hence, we have come out with an action plan," TRS president Chandrasekhar Rao told reporters today, after holding a meeting of the TRS state executive committee at the party office.

The agitation will start with road blockades on May 14 and sit-ins on May 19 at mandal headquarters followed by students' convention in Hyderabad on May 23, he said adding that Telangana supporters would lay a siege at the district collector's office on May 25 while a 'rail roko' would be held on May 30.

However, some programmes will be taken up without making a prior announcement, Chandrasekhar Rao said.

"The Telangana agitation would move towards reaching the pinnacle. All the supporters of Telangana should participate in it," he made an appeal.

When asked about Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy's new party, YSR Congress, Rao said that Reddy's new party was yet to announce its stand on various issues including Telangana.

"Whether it is Jagan, Chandrababu Naidu or C M Kiran Kumar Reddy, there is no place for integrationists in Telangana. There were occasions when all three of them had to face the ire of Telangana people," he said.
