2011/2/22 4:31:09 The two day bandh call given by Telangana political JAC for Telangana bandh proved to be a deadly blow for the beleaguered film industry, which suffered a set back with internal strikes until last few weeks ago. All the small and big film shootings came to a grinding halt in the twin cities.
Especially, the much awaited Jr.NTR’s ‘Shakti’ and Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Teen Maar’ which are nearing its completion has to stop its works due to this two day bandh. Tollywood film producer’s council has decided to halt all the film shootings during these two days to avert untoward incidents.

Despite the announcement by the Center of its decision to delete the 14F clause from the Presidential Order, Telangana Students JAC leaders supported by TRS, TTDP and ‘T’ Government employees have preferred to go ahead with their Telangana bandh on Wednesday. They said they will not believe the paper statements of the politicians in this regard instead they need Presidential orders abolishing the 14F clause. Otherwise, the bandh will be observed and they will not allow the Government to conduct the SI Exams scheduled for 13th of August.
On the other hand TRS president K.Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter Kavita has asked the pro Samaikyandhra people to quit the Telangana if they don’t want to support Telangana agitations. She has also released a poster in this regard.
TRS and TTDP leaders have asked the people of Telangana to make the bandh successful and also ask them to participate ‘All people strike’ to be started from 17th of August.
2010/11/19 15:25:42 Bowing to the pressures of ‘T-JAC’ student’s agitations, Home Minister Sabita Indra Reddy has decided to post pone the written exams of Sub Inspector recruitment. The Government also has approved her decision. While, OU and pro Telangana leaders and people welcome her decision, it ignites fire in the rest of the state. Andhra and Rayalaseema Students JAC and the political leaders have condemned the Government’s decision to post pone the exams and severely criticized for its coward ness. They demand the Home Minister Sabita Intra Reddy to step down. They also gave a call for bandh tomorrow to all the educational institutes in Andhra and Rayalaseema regions, in protest against the Government’s decision.
Even after having several bitter experiences, it seems the Government doesn’t learn lessons from the past. Can’t our politicians, leaders, Ministers, and of course the concerned officials predict the consequences of their decisions? If can, did they all want to create unrest in the state with their thoughtless decisions? If can’t, why were they paid and enjoying the power?
Ever since, the Telangana agitation begins the pro Telangana leaders, politicians and parties are virtually running a parallel Government in the state. Every other day they find some reason to create havoc in the capital, yet Government helplessly watches them go wild. The un mindful decisions of the Government turn a powerful weapons for the irresponsible leaders of the state. Either, pro Telangana leaders or leaders of the rest of the state always there in full preparedness to fight out the Government’s any decisions. Hence, the Government should have learnt that before taking any decision it would have guessed the consequences also.
Now, it’s Andhra and Seema student’s turn to create unrest in the peaceful region. Who should be blamed for these developments?
2011/8/3 16:09:02 The Telangana Students Joint Action Committee on Wednesday announced that it has postponed its earlier call of a Telangana bandh from August 5 to August 8.
