Hyderabad | 4th December 2017
Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) Chairman M Kodandaram on Monday finally addressed the much-hyped "Koluvulakai Kotlata" (fight for jobs) meeting at the Saroor Nagar grounds amidst heavy police security.
On the occasion, the TJAC chief alleged that despite the High Court permitting the unemployment meet, the Hyderabad police was creating hurdles to stop the students from attending it.
The TJAC chief claimed that the police had detained over 2,000 activists in order to stop them from attending the meet.
He however said that the TJAC would continue with its protests until the Telangana government offered a concrete solution to the issue of unemployment in the state.
Kodandaram also held the state government responsible for the suicide of Osmania University student E Murali, and said that his death reflected the TRS government's failure in creating job opportunities.
Leaders from various political parties attended the meeting and expressed their views on the state of affairs in Telangana.
Speaking on the occasion, balladeer Gaddar said that the TRS government had pushed Telangana into an era of "feudal governance".
Gaddar also alleged that the state government was harassing Kodandaram for launching movements on behalf of the people.
Also sharing the dais with Kodandaram, Telangana TDP president L Ramana accused the state government of stopping the students from attending the meeting.
"The student community, who actively participated in the Telangana movement for a separate state, will soon topple this government," Ramana said.
Meanwhile, Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao slammed Kodandaram for the meeting.
Speaking to the media, the minister ridiculed the meeting, and said that only those who were politically unemployed were participating in such protests.
KTR appealed to the students and youth to stay away from such programs as the government was committed to its promise of filling the vacant posts in all the government departments.
