Hyderabad: TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao said a strong fight should be put up to achieve the separate statehood goal for Telangana after the Centre- appointed Srikrishna Committee submits its report.

"The Srikrishna Committee is going to submit its report by the year-end. We are getting good news from the Centre. But we have to put up a strong fight to achieve the goal (of statehood)," he said, addressing a group of workers who reportedly quit TDP and jointed TRS.

TDP workers from all over Telangana are joining TRS as they have realised that the main Opposition party's chief N Chandrababu Naidu is against the separate Telangana demand, Rao said.

"It was Chandrababu Naidu who changed colours faster than a chameleon after the Centre announced its decision to form separate Telangana. TDP leaders from Telangana should protest their leader's attitude first. Instead, they say they will hold a sit-in in front of Sonia Gandhi's residence. This is nothing but a drama," he alleged.

His remarks are part of the ongoing war of words between TDP and TRS. While Rao alleges that it was Naidu who stopped the formation of separate Telangana by changing his party's stance on the issue, TDP leaders say the TRS chief was trying to defame their party at the behest of the ruling Congress.

Meanwhile, Singapore Consul General in Chennai Ajit Singh called on the TRS President this evening.

"It was a courtesy call. I objective is to call on a senior political leader in the state," Singh told PTI.

Singh sought to know about the ongoing Telangana agitation and its impact on various issues like investments, TRS sources said.
