KCR's health position worsens

December 8, 2009

The health condition of the fasting TRS president K Chandrasekhara Rao worsened on Tuesday and the medical team attending on him said that it could no longer sustain him on artificial medical treatment. As the news spread, TRS cadres made a beeline for the NIMS raising slogans and telling the media persons that a Telangana without KCR is not acceptable to them. The Director of NIMS, D Prasada Rao speaking to media persons at noon said that Chandrasekhara Rao, whose fast entered the tenth day, was not cooperating with the doctors and there was a definite decline in health. He was showing signs of protein malnutrition and becoming weaker. Artificially, propping up his health had its own re-percussions on a longer time. He should break his fast immediately to improve his health and strength.

After a three hours later, a hospital bulletin said that Chandrasekhara Rao started cooperating with the medical team attending on him. Although, the day passed off relatively peaceful in the Telangana region, the Andhra Pradesh government mobilized additional forces in the wake of a 'Chalo Assembly' call given by the Joint Action Committee of students on December 10. The committee, however, later said it would only be a peaceful rally. TRS MAL, T Harish Rao said that the Chief Minister, K Rosaiah during his visit to New Delhi on Wednesday could persuade AICC president Sonia Gandhi to announce a separate Telangana instead of resorting to police repression against the agitators to create disturbances.

Divergent views emerged from the Congress on tackling the situation as there was no word from the Central leadership. Grounds voiced demands for creation of not just Telangana but north coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema, besides Union Territory status for Hyderabad. Meanwhile, Danam Nagender and M Mukesh Goud raised the issue of UT status, two others, D Sridhar Babu and K Venkata Reddy charged them with creating confusion. Hyderabad was part of Telangana historically and no force could delink it from the region, they said.
