HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Rosaiah today appealed to Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K Chandrasekhara Rao to end his indefinite fast, assuring him that he was ready to sit with him for a dialogue on the T-issue. He also urged all political parties to impress upon Chandrasekhara Rao to give up the hunger strike.
Speaking to newsmen here, Rosaiah said the State government had done everything it could on the Telangana issue. On the Supreme Court verdict treating Hyderabad a free zone, the Chief Minister said the government had decided to file a review petition in the apex court. ‘‘Let me assure the government employees that at no point the government had thought of implementing the SC verdict. We are planning to utilise the services of senior counsels to file the review petition,’’ he said.
Referring to the violent incidents today evening near the NIMS, Rosaiah said the government had asked the police to exercise restraint. But it did not mean that the police would be mute spectators to the violence let loose by the agitators. ‘‘Our restraint cannot be viewed as our lack of action,’’ he said. In this context, he took a dig at the electronic media saying they were hyping certain incidents and asked the TV channels to be objective and understand the prevailing situation.
Replying to a volley of questions, Rosaiah said the Centre and the party leadership in Delhi had been briefed by different channels on the situation prevailing in the State.
‘‘The central leadership is seized of the matter. Separate Telangana issue has many more ramifications and is not one that can be solved in a jiffy. Several other matters are connected with this problem,’’ he said.
