Hyderabad: The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee is set to organize a 'Sadak Bandh' on the Hyderabad-Bangalore highway today. This despite permission denied by the police.
Demanding that the Centre accept the separate statehood demand immediately, Pro-Telangana parties and organisations would block traffic at various places along the highway in Telangana region.
The road blockade will be held from Mahabubnagar district, neighbouring Kurnool district in Rayalaseema region, to Hyderabad.
TRS has appointed party MLAs and MLCs as incharges for various places to enforce the road blockade.
BJP, which is in the forefront of the separate Telangana agitation, has also said party leaders would participate in the blockade at six places on the highway.
