Protests for and against Telangana state resumed in Andhra Pradesh with various groups taking to streets in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam.

Students of Osmania University and activists of Telangana Jagruthi, the cultural arm of TRS.

Some protestors also tried to lay siege to the house of state minister Viswaroop. They also pelted stones on another minister Danam Nagender, who hails from Hyderabad but wants separate statehood to Hyderabad. The minister himself caught one of the protestors and handed him over to police.

Students opposing Seemandhra meeting also tried to take out a rally from Osmania University but police stopped them from coming out of the campus. Seemandhra leaders made it clear that any move to divide the state would be unacceptable.
