The Sri Krishna committee would not make a concrete recommendation for formation of separate Telangana state and a long-drawn battle should be carried out to achieve the goal, TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao said on Sunday.

"I have information that Sri Krishna committee would only give the pros and cons of continuation of Andhra Pradesh and the pros and cons of separate Telangana. It would not make a concrete recommendation to form separate state. We need not bother about it," he said, addressing a meeting of the steering committee of Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC).

He announced a plan of action to be undertaken in the new year after the Sri Krishna committee submitted its report by the end of this month.

Protests would be held in front of district Collector offices on January 10 followed by road blockades on January 17, he said.

Indefinite relay hunger strikes would start from January 21 across Telangana, he said adding the JAC would decide on undertaking non-cooperation movement as part of the agitation.

Stating that the separate protest programmes announced by the students of Osmania University are resulting in problems, he suggested that all should work under the auspices of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) which has TRS, BJP and a number of Telangana outfits as its members.
