Staying away from the usual new year celebrations, students and other Telangana supporters organised cultural programmes highlighting the Telangana cause at various places in the region late last night.
Hundreds of students of Osmania University (OU) here, the nerve centre of separate Telangana agitation by students, held 'Telangana Dhum Dham' by singing songs and performing other Telangana folk arts.
The OU students vowed to fight for separate Telangana statehood till the goal is completely realised.
The students of Kakatiya University at Warangal also organised similar programmes.
Girl students performed 'Bathukamma' dances at several educational institutes in the region.
The students called for massive students' convention in the university campus on January 3. The students said they will go ahead with the meeting though police have denied permission.
