Telanagana students to block screening of Junior NTR film

January 10, 2010

To keep up the momentum of the agitation for separate statehood for Telanagana region, students of all the 8 universities in the region who have formed JAC have decided to stall the screening of Junior NTR block buster Adurs due for release on January 13 in the Telanagana region. The new organization to be known as Telanagana Universities Students Joint Action Committee also vowed to disrupt screening of films of artists who are known for their anti Telanagana stand.

At a press conference on Sunday, TUSJAC member M Ajay said a decision was yet to be taken whether the students should take their examinations scheduled in the next few months. As regards attending examination, they will follow the decision of OU JAC of students, he said. TUSJAC members took exception to Eluru Congress MP K Sambasiva Rao's remark tat the movement for Telanagana would die out once a strong leader from the region was made deputy Chief Minister of the State.

Refuting the argument that creation of smaller sates was not viable option, the JAC members said the argument did not hold water since UP, one of the largest states in India could not develop. The student leaders made it a point that the movement was not in the hands of politicos anymore and even if they found it hard to resist temptations of accepting positions of power, the movement would not subside.
