Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief K Chandrasekhara Rao said he will once again undertake indefinite fasting if the Srikrishna committee does not give a favorable report for the formation of Telanagana.
"I will go on indefinite fast as I did in December last year if Srikrishna committee report is not in favor of Telanagana," KCR said addressing a public meeting in Warangal today.
He said Telanagna statehood can be achieved only through aggressive movements and asked people to be prepared for intensified agitation after December 31.
He said the state government had allocated Rs one lakh to each district to celebrate 'Batukamma' - a Telangana local festival due to the pressure mounted by the TRS party.
KCR's remarks assume significance in the wake of formation of a new Telangana front by noted balladeer and folk artist Gadar here today.
According to political analysts, KCR's announcement on indefinite fasting is aimed at curtailing the intensity of the Gaddar's campaign for separate Telangana.
Gaddar, who launched a new outfit 'Telangana Praja Front', said the front is not a political party but a political force.
