The Lok Satta Party today took exception to indiscriminate lathi charge on students of Osmania University and Nizam College on Monday.

Lok Satta Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and P. Bhaskara Rao said that arrests and repression of people taking part in the general shutdown on the Telangana issue would merely aggravate the crisis.

They demanded that the Union Government instead of playing with the lives of people should announce its decision immediately on the burning issue. The decision should be rational and safeguard the interests of people of all the regions.

They appealed to all political parties and civic organizations not to rouse regional passions and ensure that students do not lose an academic year.
