Hyderabad: Asserting that only a separate
Telangana state will be acceptable to the people of the
region, TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday said a
"non-cooperation movement" will be launched as part of the
ongoing agitation for achieving separate statehood.

"Separate Telangana is the only solution to all our
problems. We will not accept anything else," he said,
addressing a gathering of employees who were holding a relay
fast in support of Telangana demand at a commercial taxes
department office here.

Maintaining that he is not silent on the separate
statehood agitation, he said the struggle should move
"strategically", without being in a hurry, till the goal is
achieved.

"A total non-cooperation movement" that would surprise
the world will be launched for achieving Telangana and the
employees of all government departments should take part in
it, he said.

Training his guns on Telangana Congress and TDP
leaders yet again, the TRS president claimed that their
unwillingness to resign from their posts is delaying the
formation of separate Telangana.

"Today, the whole Telangana race is united. They
demand separate state. But the Telangana political leaders are
not united. They are not ready to quit their posts. The lack
of unity, slavish mentality of Telangana leaders are the
curses for us," he said.
