From R. Vasudevan—Reporting from New Delhi
New Delhi, 30 December (

A bandh was observed in Telanhana region with statehood supporters staging demonstrations at various places in Andhra Pradesh on Saturday.

The shutdown has been called by TRS to protest the Centre's "indecision" on granting statehood to Telangana. BJP and Telangana Joint Action Committees are supporting the bandh, which comes a day after the all-party meeting on Telangana in New Delhi.

Educational institutions at many places remained closed and examinations of Kakatiya and Osmania Universities were postponed. Shops and business establishments downed their shutters and Road Transport Corp (RTC) buses were off the road at different places in Telangana, which comprises 10 districts.

Pro-Telangana supporters held protests accusing the Centre of failing to arrive at a decision on carving out a separate state. The bandh was peaceful.
