Hyderabad: TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday said his party would begin a "non-cooperation movement" to achieve separate Telangana after the Sri Krishna Committee submits its report to the Centre by the end of the year.

"We will wait for about 10 days after the Sri Krishna committee submits its report. Then we will adopt a non-cooperation movement in the path shown by Mahatma Gandhi. We will see that the government comes to a standstill and not even an ant moves," he said, addressing a gathering at the party office.

The TRS president has spoken several times about adopting the "non-cooperation movement" and a "Gujjar-type" agitation to achieve the separate statehood goal after the Sri Krishna committee submits its report.

The 'Telangana Maha Sakti Pradarsana' public meeting planned to be held on December 9 by the TRS would send a "warning" to the Centre on the demand for separate Telangana, he said.

It was on December 9 last year that the Centre had announced that steps would be taken for the formation of the Telangana.

Meanwhile, Manda Krishna Madiga, leader of Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti (MRPS), an outfit that fights for categorisation of Scheduled Castes, met Rao here today.

The meeting assumes significance as Krishna Madiga had lambasted the TRS president earlier for allegedly insulting him at a public meeting and on the Telangana issue.
