Hyderabad: Pro-Telangana parties and organisations would enforce a 'sadak bandh' (road blockade) on the Hyderabad-Bangalore highway on Thursday though police has denied permission for the protest. Demanding that the Centre accept the separate statehood demand immediately, they would block traffic at various places along the highway in Telangana region.

The Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC), which has called for the programme, said it would go ahead with the stir though police refused to grant permission for it.

The road blockade will be held from Mahabubnagar district, neighbouring Kurnool district in Rayalaseema region, to Hyderabad. TRS has appointed party MLAs and MLCs as incharges for various places to enforce the road blockade.
