Maoists want TJAC to go ahead with march

The CPI-Maoist North Telangana special zonal committee has asked agitators to launch a militant movement to achieve statehood. A statement written in Telugu by committee spokesperson Jagan has warned political leaders not to back down in the light of police denying permission for the march.

The Telangana Joint Action Committee has planned a march to the Assembly on June 14.
This is not the first time that the Maoists vent their anger on political parties particularly the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for using the movement for personal gain.  The Maoists alleged that political leaders deliberately deferred the Sakala Janula Samme and weakened the spirit of the people of the region.

Meanwhile, bedlam over the issue of resolution favouring formation of Telangana state continued as the TRS stalled the proceedings in the Assembly on Tuesday.

 TRS legislators have been stalling the proceedings since the beginning of the budget session except for Tuesday when it allowed the Assembly pass a condolence motion.

The Assembly was adjourned for the day without any business as the TRS members did not allow Speaker N Manohar to take up listed business. The main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) also disrupted the proceedings, demanding that the government set up a steel factory near Bayyaram iron ore mines in the Khammam district of Telangana.

The speaker adjourned the House till Wednesday as opposition legislators continued their protests near his podium after the House re-assembled following two adjournments.
As soon as the House met for the day, the speaker announced that he was rejecting the adjournment motions moved by the TDP, TRS and other parties.

 The TDP and TRS legislators were on their feet, insisting that the speaker take up the debate on the issues raised by them. They rushed to the speaker's podium to press their demand.

The speaker adjourned the House for half an hour. When the House re-assembled, the opposition continued the protest.

However, Legislative Affairs Minister D Sridhar Babu intervened and said the government was ready to set up a steel factory in Bayyaram.

On Telangana, he said as the issue was in the hands of the Centre, a resolution can't be passed in the House.
