Another shutdown on Wednesday in Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh called by a student group, demanding jobs for locals in the police department here, brought normal life to a halt.
Buses of state-owned Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) went off the roads. Schools, colleges and universities remained shut while shops and business establishments also downed shutters in the ten districts of Telangana, which include Hyderabad.
The day-long shutdown has been called by Telangana Students Joint Action Committee demanding deletion of clause 14(F) from Presidential Order, which treats Hyderabad as a free zone. This means that candidates from Andhra and Rayalaseema regions are also eligible to be recruited in police department in Hyderabad.
Commuters were stranded at bus stations across the region as APSRTC authorities suspended bus services. The corporation, however, is operating city bus services in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
As Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) is backing the shutdown, activists of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other parties took to streets to enforce the shutdown.
