Hyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samiti
(TRS) has decided to press for the introduction of a bill
favouring formation of a separate state in the Budget session
of Andhra Pradesh Assembly beginning February 13.

Speaking to reporters tonight after a joint meeting of
its Legislature Party and Politburo, TRS president K
Chandrasekhara Rao said the party would move a bill if the
government did not come forward to introduce it.

The party, which has 11 members in the assembly, would
try to stall the house over its demand for a pro-Telangana
bill in the assembly.

The TRS MLAs would boycott the governor`s address to the
assembly as he is the representative of the Centre in the
state, he said.

The Centre had failed to honour its commitment to form
separate Telangana, he said.

The party would raise the issues concerning Telangana
like the police cases against Telangana students, the non-
implementation of the promises made to pro-Telangana
employees, among others.

The TRS president expressed support to the pro-Telangana
employees of Andhra Pradesh government, who announced that
they will take up agitation again in protest of the
"non-implementation of the promises made to them during the
prolonged strike last year".
