Bandh total in Telangana districts

HYDERABAD: The 48-hour bandh in Telangana region was total and passed off peacefully on the first day on Tuesday. While life was paralysed in Warangal, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Adilabad and Medak districts, the bandh evoked a mixed response in Mahbubnagar, Nalgonda and Khammam districts.

Commuters faced severe difficulties to reach their destinations with the APSRTC employees' JAC participating in the bandh. The buses remained confined to depots across the Telangana region. While autos ran skeleton services, private operators made a killing by collecting huge amounts from the passengers. Schools, colleges and other educational institutions declared holiday for Wednesday, banks and government offices remained closed. Hotels, cinema theatres, petrol bunks and other business establishments remained shut for major part of the day.

Hundreds of TRS workers and Kakatiya University JAC students laid a siege to Rajya Sabha member Gundu Sudharani's (TDP) residence at Ramannapet in Warangal demanding her resignation. KU students tried to attack a hotel and a petrol bunk (both are run by the MP) at Nakkalagutta in Hanamkonda. However, police came in large numbers and dispersed the mob.

Tension prevailed when a group of students and TRS activists tried to gatecrash into Jagan loyalist and Congress MLC Pulla Padmavathi's residence at Peddammagadda in Warangal. However, police intervened and removed the protesters from the area. The agitating students took out a rally of donkeys in protest against those who did not submit resignations from their posts. They raised slogans against some Congress MLAs for clinging on to their posts.

Another Jagan loyalist and MLC Konda Muralidhar Rao sent his resignation to Warangal district collector Bojja Rahul, while more Congress party ZPTC members submitted their resignations.

Meanwhile, Kakatiya University students' JAC activists presented flowers in protest to Warangal RDO Sarve Sangeetha, daughter of Congress MP Sarve Satyanarayana and pleaded her to impress upon his father to tender resignation.

There was mild tension in Karimnagar town when TRS workers pelted stones on a private supermarket store. They chanted slogans against the store run by an Andhra management. Police made elaborate arrangements to prevent any untoward incident in the district.

The Andhra Pradesh-Karnataka road linkage at Deverkadra manual in Mahbubnagar district was blocked by the agitators right from 6am. Nearly 100 bus services run daily on this route, which is lucrative for both the state road transport corporations. To see that no bus should ply on the route, the agitators rushed to the bus depots before dawn and made arrangements for mass cooking.

Traffic on the national highway was disrupted till afternoon as leaders of all-party unions formed a human chain at Jedcherla. Political JAC activists and Palamur University students attacked Alampur MLA Abraham's convoy at Musapset village in Adakal manual demanding his resignation. Police came to his rescue and dispersed the mob.

The protesting activists vent their ire at Congress MLC D Rajeshwar of Nizamabad for not tendering resignation to his post. Effigies of Rajeshwar were burned at Jukkal, Pitlam, Madnoor and other parts of Nizamabad district.

Police arrested district JAC chairman Gopal Sarma and CPI (ML) New Democracy leader V Prabhakar when they tried to attack the house of the MLC at Nyalkal road in Nizamabad town.

While employees of various departments locked the district collector's office and staged a dharna there, lawyers locked the district court complex.
