Kodandaram-led JAC to fight for unemployed youth
Hyderabad: A joint action committee (JAC) to fight the TSPSC leak case was formed at a round table conference organised by the Congress here on Sunday. It was attended by leaders from various political parties and civil society groups.
TPCC senior vice-president Mallu Ravi, who organised the programme, announced that the committee will be led by Prof. M. Kodandaram. He said that as the Congress had decided to fight it out, it had invited like-minded people.
Ravi demanded that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao convene a Cabinet meeting and send a resolution to the Governor towards removing the incumbent TSPSC committee.
Prof. Kodandaram and balladeer Gaddar condemned the arrests of students, who were protesting over the issue. They proposed to meet the students and youths affected by the state government’s policies and organise a state-level dharna within a fortnight.
Speaking during the meet, Prof. Kodandaram suggested that the involvement of political parties, voluntary groups and educationists be secured for launching an all-out war against the scam which has affected lakhs of students. He demanded a compensation of Rs 1 lakh to each of those affected by the paper leak.
Gaddar called upon all the unemployed youth to start a campaign against the state government’s policies. He felt that since the TSPSC issue was a matter of grave concern all political parties should come on one platform.
