Hyderabad: Claiming that people of Telangana
are opposed to proposed tour of Congress MP Jagan Mohan Reddy,
who is against the separate statehood, to Warangal district,
TRS on Tuesday demanded the Andhra Pradesh Government stop his
visit.

"People voluntarily participated in the Warangal bandh
called today to oppose the tour of Reddy. He is against the
formation of separate Telangana and people are upset. If he
forces his way into Telangana, it will lead to terrible
developments," TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao told
reporters here tonight.
Jagan, as the young MP is popularly known, has announced
to undertake the tour of Warangal district from May 28 to
console the families of those who committed suicides following
the death of his father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy in a copter
crash last year. He also wanted to provide financial
assistance to such families.

TRS and the Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC),
comprising various organisations, have been vehemently
opposing Jagan`s visit as he is opposed to separate Telangana.
Asserting that Jagan`s visit is seen as an attack on
Telangana by leaders from non-Telangana areas, Rao warned the
situation would flare up in the region if he forces his way.

"We are ready for a face-off. But Prime Minister had
personally requested me to see that peace is restored in
Telangana," the former Union Minister said.
