The US Consulate in Hyderabad has issued an advisory to its citizens in Andhra Pradesh to be cautious till February 4 in view of agitations for a separate Telangana state and demonstrations over the arrest of MIM leaders.
"Multiple events associated with upcoming religious and national holidays, a possible decision on the Telangana statehood issue and recent arrests of local political leaders may result in large gatherings or demonstrations throughout the city through to February 4, 2013. These events could potentially lead to civil disturbances, traffic congestion, and bandhs that disrupt routine services," the advisory stated.
"Spontaneous and planned demonstrations take place in India from time to time in response to world events or local developments... Please avoid the areas where demonstrations are occurring and exercise caution if within the vicinity of any large gatherings. Please stay current with media coverage of local events, be aware of your surroundings, and practice personal security awareness at all times," the advisory added.
