Hyderabad: Activists of BJP, TRS and
various other organisations began relay hunger fast
across the region on Friday in support of their demand that the
Centre introduce a bill for formation of separate Telangana in
the Budget session of Parliament.

Several leaders of TRS, BJP and people`s organisations
who are part of the Telangana political Joint Action
Committee (JAC) took part in the relay fast.

The call for starting the relay hunger strike was given
by JAC.

JAC convener M Kodandaram threatened to intensify the
agitation for separate Telangana if the Centre delayed the
process for formation of separate Telangana.

The relay fast would continue until separate Telangana
goal is achieved, TRS leaders said.
