Hyderabad: Alleging that Andhra Pradesh
Governor E S L Narasimhan is against the demand for a separate
Telangana, TRS on Wednesday night said it will protest and walk out
during his speech at the State Assembly Thursday.

"The Governor is anti-Telangana. He insulted Telangana
and the movement several times. We will protest, disrupt and
walk out when he addresses the Assembly tomorrow," senior TRS
MLA T Harish Rao told reporters late tonight after a meeting
of the TRS legislature party.

Claiming that Telangana has been "cheated" ever since
Andhra Pradesh was formed 56 years ago, he said the region is
not going to benefit in any way during the Budget session of
Andhra Pradesh Assembly that starts here tomorrow.

Observing that Telangana government employees and
others are starting a non-cooperation agitation from tomorrow
on the statehood issue, Rao said the MLAs of ruling Congress,
main Opposition TDP and even Ministers should refuse to
cooperate in running the Assembly.
