Strike threat after March 5

Special Correspondent

‘Fate of Intermediate, SSC exams depends on TJAC decision'

HYDERABAD: The State government staff in Telangana will launch an indefinite strike any day after March 5 if a clear-cut announcement on formation of Telangana was not made by then. The decision to go on strike was taken at a meeting of leaders of employee organisations affiliated to Telangana gazetted officers, employees, teachers and workers joint action committee here on Thursday.

Briefing reporters later, committee chairman K. Swamy Goud, secretary general V. Srinivas Goud and co-chairmen B. Deviprasad Rao and C. Vittal said the ongoing non-cooperation movement by staff will continue till the launch of the strike. If any employee was victimised in the process, they threatened to stop emergency services, including power and water supply and healthcare.

They also said teachers were asked not to participate in the ongoing census operations. There was no question of going back on the agitation even if the government did not release salaries for months or deployed police to run services. As regards the conduct of SSC and Intermediate examinations, the committee will abide by the decision of Telangana joint action committee (TJAC) after consultations with teachers organisations and parents committees.

The steering committee of JAC, at a separate meeting, decided to give a call for ‘Chalo Hyderabad' by lakhs of people from Telangana districts demanding statehood in the second week of March. A 24-hour rail roko was also finalised but the date was not fixed. The meeting was held to chalk out the future course of agitation after the success of bandh in the last two days.

JAC chairman M. Kodandaram said processions expressing solidarity with employees and resenting the attitude of Congress MLAs in not highlighting the issue of statehood in Assembly would be taken out on February 25 and 26. Effigies of MLAs and Ministers would be burnt on February 28. He also said the Congress MLAs and Ministers would be the focus of future agitation as they refused to mount pressure on the government with regard to statehood just as the party MPs did in Lok Sabha.
