Alleging that the Srikrishna committee on Telangana issue suggested measures to suppress the separate statehood agitation, the Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) today demanded the prosecution of the panel.
The committee has recommended measures like taking stern action against pro-Telangana students, making ruling party and opposition work together, softening TRS to curb the separate statehood agitation, JAC convener M Kodandaram claimed.
These are the measures that were part of the eighth chapter of the committee's report which has not been made public, he alleged.
The Andhra Pradesh High Court today directed the Centre to make public the contents of the eighth chapter.
The JAC convener demanded that the members of the panel be prosecuted.
He also condemned the alleged cross-voting by three TRS MLAs in the Legislative Council polls. The MLAs, who denied having voted for another party's candidate in the election, have already been suspended by the TRS.
The JAC would organise protests in Hyderabad on March 26 and in Telangana district on March 28 against alleged illegal detentions of Telangana supporters, Kodandaram said.
The district committees of the JAC would meet in the first week of April to discuss future course of action.
Asked about the reported gulf between the BJP and JAC, he said the BJP indicated that it would continue to work together with the JAC.
