Shutdown in Chittoor to oppose Andhra's possible division

Jan 29 2013, 2:42am CST | by

Hyderabad, Jan 29 (IANS) In the face of the central government indefinitely delaying a decision on Telangana, protests are continuing in Rayalaseema and Andhra regions of Andhra Pradesh to oppose a possible division of the state.

Hyderabad, Jan 29 — In the face of the central government indefinitely delaying a decision on Telangana, protests are continuing in Rayalaseema and Andhra regions of Andhra Pradesh to oppose a possible division of the state.

A shutdown was being observed Tuesday in Chittoor district of Rayalaseema region to demand the centre to keep the state undivided.

Shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed in Chittoor, Tirupati and other towns.

Hundreds of people, including students, took to streets in Chittoor, opposing the demand for bifurcation of the state.

Holding banners and placards, the protestors raised slogans in support of 'samaikhya Andhra' or united Andhra.

The protestors said a state formed for Telugu-speaking people should remain united.

Chittoor legislator C.K. Babu supported the shutdown call given by samaikhya Andhra Joint Action Committee (SAJAC).

In the temple town of Tirupati, SAJAC activists forced closure of shops. The protestors also damaged buses of those schools which were open, ignoring the shutdown call.

Protests were continuing in majority of the nine districts of Andhra and four districts of Rayalaseema to oppose possible division of the state.

Telangana comprises 10 districts, including Hyderabad.
