Hyderabad, Sept 10: After Seemandhra employees meeting in Hyderabad to oppose proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, it is now the turn of pro-Telangana groups to organise a massive show of strength to press the demand for speeding up the process for formation of a separate state.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhara Rao told reporters today that 'Telangana Grajna Sabha' will be held in Hyderabad this month. He said the date and other details will be announced by Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC).

Government employees from Seemandhra held a meeting in Hyderabad on Saturday to demand withdrawal of Congress's decision to carve out Telangana.

A shutdown was observed in Telangana the same day on a call given by TJAC to protest the anti-Telangana attitude of the government in allowing Seemandhra meet while not permitting it to organise a peace rally.

Rao announced the plans for the Telangana meeting after talks with party general secretary K Keshava Rao, TJAC convenor M Kodandaram and other top leaders.

The TRS chief said there was nothing great about Seemandhra meeting. "The number of drivers who come to meetings organised by Telangana employees are more than those who attended Seemandhra meeting," Rao said.

He, however, said he was leaving to the conscience of the speakers who made certain remarks about him and other Telangana leaders and the kind of language they used.

KCR said formation of Telangana state has reached a decisive phase and no force can stop it. He said some people were making attempts to stall the process but they would not succeed.

He also made it clear that no alternative to a Telangana state comprising 10 districts including Hyderabad would be acceptable to people. He was reacting to demands from some quarters to make Hyderabad a union territory.

"We want the same Telangana which existed before merger with Andhra in 1956," he said while asking people to remain alert till the goal is achieved.
