TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao, who is on a fast-unto-death for a separate Telangana state, was admitted to a Government Hospital here on Thursday after being shifted from Khammam.

Mr. Rao was brought to the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Science (NIMS) this morning from the Khammam Government Hospital, where he was undergoing treatment for the last four days.

The former Union Minister is being treated in the Acute Medical Care (AMC) ward of NIMS by a special team of doctors, official sources said.

Rao was put in Khammam sub-jail after being arrested ahead of his proposed fast-unto-death at Siddipet in Medak district earlier this week.

The TRS chief called off his fast in two days after being admitted in the Khammam hospital, but resumed it following adverse reaction from Telangana protagonists.

The TRS President was administered saline, allegedly against his wishes, at the Khammam hospital yesterday after his health deteriorated following his indefinite fast.

Meanwhile, a large number of TRS leaders and activists gathered at NIMS.

TRS floor leader in Assembly E Rajender threatened to take leaders of the ruling Congress in Andhra Pradesh to task if they delayed initiating the process for formation of a separate Telangana.
