As the strike by various sections of people has already affected normal life in nine other districts, the JAC is focusing on Hyderabad, where a large number of people from Andhra and Rayalaseema regions live.

Shops, business establishments and petrol bunks were closed in some parts of the city but remained open in others. Majority of the educational institutions declared a holiday as a precautionary measure. While buses of state-owned Road Transport Corporation (RTC) remained off the roads for the 12th consecutive day, many auto-rickshaws were plying in areas like Nampally, Abids and Secunderabad.

Policemen and Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel escorted the buses carrying employees from andhra and rayalaseema regions to the state secretariat. Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao has appealed to the people to make the shutdown a success. Confident that the separate state would soon become a reality, he assured people that there would be no shutdowns in the near future.
