TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao's on Tuesday ignored doctors' appeal for giving up his indefinite fast as his health deteriorated and simmering tensions put the Congress in a bind over the separate Telangana demand.
The Andhra Pradesh Assembly saw uproar following TRS members' disruption of the House over the issue after the government failed to come up with a resolution for separate Telangana.
As an insistent TRS chief refused to budge to the appeal of doctors to call off his protest, Chief Minister K Rosaiah is leaving for New Delhi on Wednesday for consultations with Congress President Sonia Gandhi on the sensitive issue which has divided the party on regional lines in the state.
"The team of doctors, after careful examination of Rao's health, felt that he should break his fast immediately. Otherwise, it might lead to serious complications," K Prasada Rao, Director of Nizam's Insitute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), told reporters.
Senior TRS MLA and Rao's nephew T Harish Rao said party leaders and family members too urged the party President to break the fast but did not not agree.
He has also refused to take medicines and that was complicting the situation as he has not not taken solids for the last over a week, TRS senior leader Nayini Narasimha Reddy said.
