OU professor Kodandaram who led Telangana Joint Action Committee had played crucial role in Telangana movement. He has been an underdog for a while after formation of the state. Of late, Kodandaram has been criticising TRS government and their policies. Finally, Kodandaram announces his own political party named “Telangana Jana Samithi”. Party flag and agenda will be announced on April 4 and public meeting will be held on April 29 in Hyderabad. Apparently, the colors in the flag would reflect Telangana martyrs who sacrificed for the state. Kodandaram said that he would contest the 2019 elections without any alliance.
