Protest for Telangana
Hyderabad, Oct 13: Agitation in Andhra Pradesh demanding a separate Telangana state entered 30th day on Thursday, Oct 13. Schools and other educational institutions have been suffering most as all educational organisations have been closed for more than a month.

Parents of the students, who might lose an educational year over the protest and row, met Chief Minister, Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday.

After meeting the CM, the angry parents claimed that all education organisations should be taken outside the periphery of such protest.

The spokesperson for the parents association said, "All educational institutions should be kept out of the strikes. The students" careers should not be jeopardised."

The worried parents also expressed their rage while mentioning, "When bars, shopping malls, cinema halls and other establishments are doing their business without any hindrance, why are the educational institutions being forced to shut down?"

However, sources reported that the CM, after getting a green signal from the Governor, ESL Narasimhan, has come up with an action plan to deal with the employees who are on strike.

It has also been reported that the government plans to take tough action against Telangana Employees Joint Action Committee leaders C Vithal, Srinivasa Goud, K Swamy Goud, and Ashwathama Reddy and Thomas Reddy-Telangana RTC union leaders. They may face charges for violating service rules by revolting against the government and blockading employees from performing their duties.
