In his first interview after his fast, KCR has told NDTV that there is no question of going back on Telangana, and that the leaders of Andhra must agree with Sonia’s decision. He has also accused the anti-Telangana protests of being sponsored.
He has also said that Hyderabad will be a part of Telangana, as according to him, 95% of the city’s population is from Telangana, and only 5% is from Andhra.
The rest of Andhra is on a rampage of its own, raising its voice in favour of a united Andhra Pradesh. TDP MLA Devineni Uma Maheshwar Rao is going on a hunger strike from tomorrow in Vijayawada.
There’s a bandh in Vizianagaram, where there is a demand for Botsa Satyanarayana to step down. Kurnool, where all means of transport have been stopped and a motorcycle rally was conducted, has been paralyzed.
Tirupati is in its second day of its bandh, though buses are still plying to Tirumala. Chittoor is quite violent, with buses being burnt and police resorting to a lathi charge. The student’s strike in Anantapur was also not peaceful, and there was lathi charge there as well.
