TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao was on Friday discharged from a Hyderabad hospital after being admitted for 13 days during his fast for a separate Telangana state. A huge crowd of fans greeted him when he came out of the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences and got into his car.

The 55-year-old leader broke his fast on Wednesday night after the Centre bowed to his demand for creation of a separate Telangana state.

Meanwhile, non-Telangana regions of Andhra Pradesh today reported protests and bandhs opposing creation of Telangana against which 103 MLAs of Congress, TDP and PRP have resigned.

Incidents of violence and stoning of buses were reported in towns of coastal Andhra and Rayasaleema against the Centre's decision to carve out Telangana state.

Speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy announced in the Assembly today that 103 MLAs of Congress, TDP and PRP have resigned and that he will go by the rule book while taking a decision on them.

He said he will have to ascertain if the members resigned due to their own volition or due to any compulsion. Members including PRP Chief Chiranjeevi raised the issue in the house and felt the decision on a separate Telangana should have been taken through consensus.

Out of those who have resigned, over 50 MLAs belong to Congress, over 40 to TDP and 11 to PRP.
