Hyderabad,  particularly L B Stadium, the venue of Save Andhra Pradesh meeting of APNGOs,  was literally under police siege  as  nearly 5,000 police personnel were  deployed around the LB Stadium,  suspecting that  Telangana activists may try to disrupt the meeting.

The RTC buses were confined to APSRTC depots in Telangana districts. About 700 buses in Nalgonda, 660 buses in Nizamabad district, 940 in Karminagar district, 800 buses in Mahaboobnagar and 600 buses in Adilabad district have  not came out from the APSRTC depots.

Near Suryapet in Nalgonda district, the Telangana activists attacked an RTC bus belonging to Sattupally depot. At Khammam, the CPI (ML-New Democracy) members staged a dharna in front of RTC depot, and not allowed the buses to come out from the depot. In Hanumakonda, the TRS activists under the leadership of MLA Vijay Bhaskar staged a dharna at the main gate of RTC depot.

Educational institutions, cinema theatres, petrol bunks, shops and business establishments were voluntarily closed.

The Telangana activists attacked a private bus, which was coming from Vijayawada and damaged its window panes, in which a person was injured. They also pelted stones on buses bringing Seemandhra employees to Hyderabad on the National Highway No 9 near Nakrekal.

In Uppal, Ramanthapur, Amberpet areas, the TRS activists, moving in a vehicle, urged the shop owners to close their establishments.
