Telangana protests
Hyderabad, Jan 6: This was just the sort of reaction that the government feared as an aftermath of the Srikrishna Committee report being made public. The nerve centre of the Telangana agitation, the Osmania University has erupted in protests in response to the recommendations given out by the report.

The pro-Telangana protestors engaged in stone pelting and caused bodily harm to police personnel stationed there. The protestors have called for a bandh on Friday in protest. The students turned violent and has burned a city bus making the climate in Hyderabad volatile and sensitive.

The reactions from various parties can be termed “mixed" with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) threatening to go on fast soon. The TRS and the BJP has rejected the proposals of the committee outright and said that they still root for a separate Telangana state. The TRS also suggested that a bill be introduced in the Budget session of Parliament even at the cost of a mass-fasting by Congress MLAs and MPs who supports the existence of a separate Telangana state.

One of the first party to come out with opinion on the report was the Praja Rajyam Party that welcomed the recommendation for a United Andhra. The TDP leaders came out with varied reactions and said that it was up to the Centre to come out with a feasible solution rather than “plying with people's sentiments."
