General Strike in Andhra Pradesh & Hyderabad

There will be a one-day “general strike” in Hyderabad and across Andhra Pradesh on Feb. 28th, 2012. Transportation and other services throughout Andhra Pradesh are expected to be impacted as a result. The university will operate as normal, with the possibility that some faculty may not be able to reach campus in a timely manner due to the expected impact on transportation throughout the downtown area of the city.

 

Complete information about the strike can be found in the article via the enclosed web link:

As a general precaution, CIEE students have been advised by CIEE staff to avoid all related protests, demonstrations, and public gatherings and remain close to campus until the general strike has concluded. A second general strike has also been planned for March 20th. Details regarding that strike will be communicated at a later time.
