Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS)
President K Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday announced that he would
undertake a fast-unto-death from November 29 for creation of
separate Telangana state.
"I had announced that I will start fast-unto-death to
achieve Telangana. Accordingly, I will begin my fast at 11 am
at Siddipet (in Medak district) on November 29," he told
Describing his proposed fast as the final battle for
statehood, he said the TRS cadres and people at large should
be prepared for it.
Rao had met President Pratibha Patil and Leader of the
Opposition in Lok Sabha L K Advani in Delhi earlier this month
to drum up support for his proposed fast.
Though he had announced he would meet Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi during his
visit to the national capital, that did not materialise.
Prior to visiting Delhi, the former Union Minister
also met Andhra Pradesh Governor N D Tiwari and Chief Minister
K Rosaiah to apprise them about his plans.
