Telangana political Joint Action Committee under pressure to be apolitical

While BJP is threatening to quit the Telangana political Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) in the wake of the latter’s decision to support TRS in the Parkal bypoll, activists are urging the vanguard of the separate Telangana state movement to become totally ‘apolitical’.

T-JAC has TRS, BJP, and CPML (New Democracy) as its constituents and the non-political T stakeholders, which includes other JACs, are planning to demand that the platform exclude political parties after a meeting in Warangal on Friday convened by Kakatiya University-JAC (student wing).

The JACs are also going to appeal to T-JAC to review its unilateral decision to support TRS in the Parkal bypoll.

The JACs are even considering boycotting the Parkal bypoll in case T-JAC rejects this demand. It is learnt that they have even decided that, if need be, they would go ahead with the movement without T-JAC involvement.
