TJAC Website, Telangana JAC Website
The Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) Chairman Prof M Kodandaram, who is seems to be determined to fight against `anti-people policies’ of the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, is now expanding his reach to the virtual world.
After his futile attempt to organise a massive dharna last week at Indira Park protesting against Land Acquisition bill of the government, it seems he realised that it would be easy for him to reach large number of people, more than through `direct actions’.
To ensure update the issues to the public, now TJAC has set up its own website, http://telanganajac.wixsite.com/tjac, besides intensifying its efforts to bring out a journal to bridge communication with the people more effectively.
TJAC is already active on social media and is also using chat messengers to create awareness among people. Now, Kodandaram is proposing hereafter to keep all the reports compiled by it on issues such as farmers’ suicides and problems faced by various sections of people in its website for public consumption.
Unveiling the website last evening, he warned that TJAC would continue to fight for the sake of people within purview of the constitution despite the repressive measures being adopted by the government. Strongly denouncing the government’s action by refusing permission to the proposed Dharna last week, he cautioned that repressive measures on democratic protests will do more harm to the government.
Referring to TRS leaders accusations that he has turned as Congress-agent, Prof Kodandaram asserted that being a people’s organisation, TJAC needs to interact with various political parties to undertake agitations on issues concerning people.
After its tirade against government’s land bill, now seems to be focusing on government’s move to allow private universities. TJAC has announced that it will be holding ‘Vidya Parirakshana Yatra’ from January 7. The proposed yatra is aimed at making the state government drop its decision to allow private universities to set up their centres in the state.
