Justice Chandra Kumar, Retired High Court Judge, was elected as the convener while Human Rights Activist Jeevan Kumar, Jamaat-e-Islami office bearer Sadiq Ahmed and Murtala Vemula were elected as the co-conveners.
Interacting with the media, Sadiq Ahmed said the group would launch a sustained campaign against the ‘black law” across the country. “We will take it from the grass root level to the national capital. We are shortly going to start a campaign against the bill in all districts and mandals of Telangana,” he said.
