As a protest against the terms of reference of Srikrishna committee, Telangana students Joint Action Committee has given a call for Telangana one day voluntary bandh, which has just evoked lukewarm response in the region. Except one or two violent activities by T-activists in Warangal district, bandh remained calm and quite and of course parti al too.
Reports say that, in Waranagl district T-agitators have set few buses on fire, while in Medak, Mahabubnagar, Adilabad, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Nalgonda districts bandh was not welcomed fully. Till noon, although the commercial activities in these districts have been shut down but past noon shop keepers have freely opened and started their regular business.
With the directive from High Court to APSRTC, buses in many regions across the Telangana were operated in normal. With Shivaratri festival celebrated yesterday, special buses to all the pilgrim centres have been in full swing with no deterrence.
Anticipating violent activities from few groups in Telangana, police arrested few leaders in advance as a preventive measure. Osmania University remained almost calm without any violence.
Amidst all this suspense, Srikrishna Committee has conducted its first ever meeting at Vignan Bhavan in New Delhi.
