The TSRTC strike has concluded its fifth day and in order to intensify
their protest further, the Joint Action Committee (JAC) is planning to
call for a Telangana bandh (shutdown).
Today the RTC JAC has hosted an all-party meeting and tried to gather the support of oppositions. JAC has managed to get the back in the all-party meeting and now it would be meeting political parties individually from tomorrow for the call on bandh. If things work as per JAC plans, the shutdown of state could be on October 19th.
Also the RTC JAC is planning to meet Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan and sort an appointment from Raj Bhavan sources. Going by the happenings RTC JAC is hell bent to make the government to bow down to its demands.
On the other hand, the government too is making alternative arrangements for public. The government is considering to extend the holidays by two days so that the people can reach the destination and settle down.
