Telangana bandh turns violent; balladeer Gaddar seeks apology from KCR

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K. Chandrasekhar Rao ended his indefinite fast in Khammam on Monday evening in circumstances as dramatic as they unfolded on Sunday morning when he was picked up by the police in Karimnagar.

Mr. Rao accepted a glass of juice in the Khammam Civil Hospital where he was taken from the sub-jail on the recommendation of a team of doctors from Gandhi Hospital, Secunderabad, which was rushed there.
His nephew and party MLA, T. Harish Rao, when he ended his fast, claimed that KCR was forcibly administered saline after he which he called off his protest.

There was an angry reaction to Mr. Rao abruptly calling off his hunger strike from staunch supporters of Telangana, including balladeer Gaddar, who wanted him to tender an apology to the people. They said lives had been lost during the last two days after KCR announced he would fast-unto-death.

KCR plea to students

The TRS president, who spoke to mediapersons from his hospital bed, appealed to students not to resort to violence as it was not the party’s philosophy.

He said the TRS would chalk out its future strategy on securing statehood for Telangana.

Earlier in the day, the bandh in Telangana took a violent turn as TRS followers took to the streets damaging vehicles and private property.

KCR’s withdrawal from fast draws flak from student community which vows to carry on agitation

HYDERABAD: The two-day-long agitation of students in different universities of Telangana in support of TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao turned against him on Monday evening, after he announced withdrawal of his fast.

Over 2,000 students assembled before the College of Arts and Social Sciences on Osmania University campus, where a marathon meeting was held in support of the TRS president earlier, were now spitting fire and accusing him of backstabbing. The Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and the Telangana Ikya Karyacharana (TIK) committee of different other student organisations took out separate ‘mock KCR funeral processions’ on the campus.

The students, who had been receiving support from different associations like Telangana Lawyers Forum at the meeting in front of Arts College, were chalking out an action plan for Tuesday, when they came to know of KCR’s withdrawal of fast. Within minutes, students from different hostels flooded the Arts College meeting venue abusing KCR.

While the TIK activists went in procession from the Arts College to NCC gate, the ABVP workers took out a rally from the New Research Scholars Hostel to the Arts College. Separate rallies raising anti-KCR slogans also started from different hostels culminating in another massive meeting at Arts College.

Cutting across organisation lines, the students vowed to not to stop but to continue the agitation for Telangana statehood. They decided to meet again on Tuesday and chalk out to new strategy to take forward the movement without involving any political party.

A rally protesting KCR’s withdrawal was also taken out by students at the Telangana University at Dichpally. The agitating students burnt his effigy and decided to take up an independent agitation.
