Hyderabad: The railway authorities in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh today canceled 47 trains coming to Hyderabad from various parts of the southern region to foil a million-man march asking for creation of a separate Telangana state.
The Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) on Thursday held the march to press the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government for a bill in Parliament in this regard.
The South Central Railway (SCR) canceled four express trains and 43 passenger trains, connecting various districts of Telangana with Hyderabad.
The canceled trains include those coming from Warangal, Kazipet, Mahabubnagar, Kamareddy, Miryalguda and Kurnool districts from Andhra Pradesh.
Besides, even trains coming from the Andhra and Rayalaseema regions but passing through Telangana have been canceled.
Not just this, the authorities also suspended Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) train services on three out of four routes in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
