Battle lines at Tank Bund for TJAC's Million March

We all know how crucial was 2011's "Million March" protest in Telangana agitation and seven years later, to coincide with its anniversary, Prof Kondaram-led Telangana JAC called for another Million March programme on Tank Bund in Hyderabad.

Police denied permission to the TJAC for the march, which is also being supported by Left parties and various other organisations. Although it is not official, police have kept Kodandaram under house arrest by deploying a large posse of cops around his Tarnaka residence on Friday evening itself. "The TRS government can not suppress the voice of the people of Telangana by using police force", he said. Speaking to media, Kodandaram said that government is illicitly conducting state-wide arrests of JAC leaders with a view to block them from coming to Hyderabad. The Chief Minister has claimed that he will fight in Delhi for the state but is not allowing the citizens of the state to fight for their rights in the city which is unfair. After denying permission for the march, police have been arresting TJAC leaders and cadre all over the state illegally. "It is very undemocratic that people were not allowed even to recall the past protests undertaken against Seemandhra rulers".

Though police put up barricades and fencing preventing the public to move towards Ambedkar Circle on the Tank Bund, a few activists made a vain bid to go towards the statue raising anti-government slogans and calling the detention of the activists as undemocratic.

"In view of Million March by TJAC in Hyderabad City and in order to maintain security, Traffic on the Upper Tank bund will be closed from 11 am to 5 pm", the police said in a release. Police had also put traffic restrictions on the surroundings of Tank Bund and had opened only one route to facilitate the movement of motorists.
