For a cause: MLC Chukka Ramaiah, MLA T. Harish Rao and others at the relay hunger strike camp at Siddipet, in Medak district, on Monday.

SANGAREDDY: It was expression of their deep desire for the formation of Telangana by the people of Siddipet in Medak district. The relay fast that commenced on Jan 3, 2010, seeking formation of Telangana entered 365th day on Monday.

On this occasion, large number of people participated in the fast held in Siddipet.

MLC Chukka Ramaiah, MLA T. Harish Rao, TRS politburo member Madhusudhanachary, former MLAs S. Ramalinga Reddy, M. Padma, TNGO Association president Swami Goud, general secretary Devi Prasad, Gazetted Officers Association president Srinivas Goud and others participated in the programme.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Ramaiah and Mr. Harish Rao called upon the people to get ready for final fight for the separate state.

“We have to continue our fight till the Telangana is formed. All the forces are getting united to fight for the cause and the resignation of Telugu Desam Party MLA Pocharam Srinivas Reddy of Nizamabad is an indication for this,” they said adding that the TDP leaders are coming out of the party unable to digest the ‘two eyes theory' of party president N. Chandrababu Naidu.

They said that the fight would be intensified if the Justice Srikrishna Committee report goes against the wishes of the people of the region.

Non-cooperation movement

Adilabad Staff Reporter adds: Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) chairman professor M. Kodandaram on Monday exhorted people in Adilabad to support the non-cooperation movement to be launched soon in the region. He said the movement will form part of the struggle for materialisation of separate Telangana.

Mr. Kodandaram was participating in a programme organised to mark completion of one year of relay hunger strikes by local pro-Telangana activists.

Telangana Jagruti president K. Kavita, BJP senior leader Ch. Vidyasagar Rao and others also attended.

As many as 2,011 protagonists of Telangana participated in the relay hunger strike during the day. The activists also formed a human chain.
