The Osmania University Students Joint Action Committee on Thursday gave a call for a Telangana 'bandh' on September 5, to press for its demand that the government issue a clarification on providing a quota in recruitments of successful APPSC Group-1 candidates from Telangana.
Talking to media persons, student leader P Ravi stated that the OUSJAC was demanding that the government guarantee that 42% candidates from Telangana region, who clear the Group-1 examinations conducted by the APPSC, be recruited.
Ravi also said that the OUSJAC has decided that it would not rest till the government orders the immediate suspension of APPSC Chairman Venkata Rami Reddy, who has been facing allegations of irregularities. An enquiry into the allegations is currently underway.
The OUSJAC leader also revealed that a candle light vigil would be conducted to pay tributes to the people who had fought against the Mulki rules, on September 3.
Ravi said that students across the region would boycott their classes and take their part in an agitation if state government does not take the warning seriously and does not clarify its stand on issuing clarifications on the quota issue on September 4.
The OUSJAC leader also warned the government that if the APPSC goes ahead with conducting the APPSC G1 preliminary examinations under police protection, then the government should be ready to take responsibility for any untoward incident in the state.
The OUSJAC appealed to candidates who are appearing for the examinations to boycott the tests, asking them to tear the question papers in the examination halls.
The student leader also called on the main opposition Telugu Desam Party to realise the gravity of the situation and join students of the Telangana region in their fight for justice.
Meanwhile, Telangana Rashtra Samithi, the Bharatiya Janata Party and New Democracy have announced their support to the OUSJAC bandh call.
