TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and a delegation of Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) today left for the national capital to press for an early decision in favour of the separate statehood for Telangana.

The delegation would meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other important leaders including Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj, Mr. Rao told reporters here.

“The general strike in the region has entered 18th day today. It has been peaceful. But the state government is trying to make it violent. The attacks on TRS MLAs Harish, Rama Rao and Swamy Goud (a pro-Telangana employees union leader) in the last three-four days prove this. We are going to Delhi to explain the situation here to the Prime Minister and other important leaders like Sushma Swaraj,” he said.

The BJP supports the demand for separate Telangana state.

“We will request the Prime Minister to take an early decision on Telangana,” he said.

The TRS president has vowed to continue the present agitation till the demand is met.

The ‘sakala janula samme’ (strike by all sections of people) has badly affected the normal life in the region.
