Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samiti president K. Chandrasekhara Rao has announced that he will start his fast-unto-death, demanding a separate State, near the Martyrs’ Memorial at Siddipet on November 29.

At a press conference here on Monday, he said it was now or never and a fight to the finish. “Be prepared for either my funeral procession or a victory rally,” he said, adding that the TRS would not be held responsible for any eventuality, incidents of violence, bloodshed or any development. The demand of a separate State apart, the immediate objective of an agitation by the party was to see that lands that were encroached upon by realtors in and around Hyderabad, were returned to the poor, he said.
