Schools across the Telangana region reopened and thousands of coal mine workers resumed work on Tuesday, calling off their agitation even as the general strike called by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) entered its 36{+t}{+h}day.

About 52 lakh students and two lakh teachers were back at school in about 40,000 institutions, both government and private, in the region.

In the Singareni Collieries, 1.5 lakh miners reported to work in shifts and daily production is expected to reach the normal capacity of 1.5 lakh tonnes soon. This will considerably ease the power situation with thermal generation showing signs of improvement. With the A.P. State Road Transport Corporation operating full-fledged services since Saturday, the impact of the strike has largely eased, paving way for restoration of a semblance of normality in the beleaguered region. After the breakthrough achieved by the government in persuading bus crew, coal miners and school managements, several other unions have fallen in line. On Tuesday, Social Welfare residential school teachers and members of the Telangana Government Junior Lecturers’ Association withdrew their agitation after talks with Social Welfare and Education Ministers Pithani Satyanarayana and K. Parthasarathy respectively. They assured the government that they would report for duty from Wednesday and work on holidays to compensate for the loss of 17 days. The government also agreed to consider their various service-related issues.

However, the Telangana Employees Joint Action Committee (TEJAC), which works in close coordination with the political JAC led by M. Kodandaram of the TRS has stuck to its stand to continue with the strike until a road map for a separate State is announced. The Secretariat Telangana Employees Association also continued its protest. It deplored Congress MLAs and Ministers for not showing the resolve to continue the agitation after seeking the employees’ support for the general strike.

Its president Narender Rao said different unions, which suspended their strike, would join the movement later, if necessary.
