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.

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.
