Telangana bandh evokes good response

October 17, 2011
Hyderabad

The bandh call given by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) across Telangana evoked good response as the agitation went peaceful across the region. The TJAC has called for a bandh on Monday in protest against the arrests made during the rail roko protests over the weekend.

The Telangana activists blocked the Hyderabad - Vijayawada highway which led to disruption in traffic for several hours. The police have arrested 20 people in this connection. The activists damaged three buses and also attempted to set a bus on fire in Mahabubnagar district.

In Hyderabad, the APSRTC has operated its buses in most routes, but autorickshaws were off the road for most part of the day. The morning and afternoon shows in Cinema theaters were suspended.
