Telangana joint action panel to meet today

Hyderabad: The Telangana Joint Action Committee is slated to meet on Tuesday evening to decide on their future course of action.
The strike on the other hand will continue with employees sitting in protest.
Teachers, who had joined the protest earlier by carrying on with classes but refusing to accept salaries, have called off their strike. The decision came after negotiations with the government became a success.
Meanwhile, the Telangana issue is also likely to figure in a big way in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Lal Krishna Advani's Jan Chetna Yatra against corruption on Tuesday as he enters Andhra Pradesh.
The timing is significant as it comes soon after the party pledged its support for separate statehood.
Pro-Telangana groups had called for a bandh across Andhra Pradesh on Monday to put pressure on the Centre to agree to their demands.
However, the government had given ultimatum to private schools to stay open or face de-recognition.
