Hyderabad: TRS, BJP and other pro-Telangana organisations on Thursday began a 'Sadak Bandh' (road blockade) on the Hyderabad-Bangalore Highway in support of the separate statehood demand even as police denied permission for it.

Leaders and workers of TRS, BJP and other organisations tried to enforce the blockade since morning by squatting on the roads.

The blockade is being carried out from Mahabubnagar district, neighbouring Rayalaseema region, to Hyderabad. The 'Sadak Bandh' supporters chose various places on the highway to enforce the agitation.
