Congress leaders believe that if G.O 317 exists, it would create a situation where teachers are in serious trouble. Some even committed suicide. In the wake of this, the Congress party took up the fight against 317 GO. MLA Sitakka and NSUI state president Balmuri Venkat staged a protest near the Ambedkar statue near the Teluguthalli flyover in Hyderabad. They demanded the abolition of GO. The protest was organized under the leadership of Venkat.
Congress leaders demanded that priority be given to transfers locally to tribal employees registered under 317 GO. It is alleged that the Rule of Reservation was violated without following the policy. They demanded TRS and BJP to stop dramas with the lives of employees. They want to discuss the decisions of the multi-zonal posts with the unions and make transfers acceptable to all.
Congress leaders demanded the President to take back GO 317 orders. Employees who are recruited on the basis of the locality are told to provide security locally. Demanded adjustment of zonal multi zonal districts. Police have arrived at the protest venue and took control of the situation though the protest was peacefully held. Venkat was shifted to Mushirabad police station and Sitakka to Nampally PS.
