Hyderabad: TRS, the Telangana political Joint
Action Committee (JAC) and Congress leaders from the region
voiced stiff opposition to Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy`s fast to be held at Nizamabad district on Tuesday.
"Jagan has an anti-Telangana attitude. He never spoke in
support of Telangana. He has tried to evade a clear stance on
the separate statehood demand (by saying that the decision on
it has to be taken by Centre). All Congress activists in
Telangana should oppose his visit," Congress Lok Sabha member
from Karimnagar Ponnam Prabhakar told reporters.
Jagan is scheduled to hold a 48-hour fast at Armoor in
Nizamabad district over farmers` problems.

in Telangana region is only a manifestation of the "domination

"We seek a clear stand on Telangana. No one should come
here without a clear stance on the separate statehood issue.
No political yatra should be undertaken in Telangana (without
endorsing separate statehood demand)," JAC convener M
