Komatireddy Venkat Reddy loses 4 kgs as his indefinite fast enters Day 3

November 3, 2011

The Indefinite fast by former Minister and Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy entered the third day. Venkat Reddy looked very weak and has lost 4 kgs since he began the fast on November 2nd. His family members joined him in the camp and expressed concerns about his health. The Government doctors are monitoring his health condition twice a day and have also expressed concern on his condition. Despite his weakness, Komatireddy looked in great spirits as he shook the hands of those who visited him at the camp.

Several children of local schools staged rallies extending their solidarity to Komatireddy Venkat Reddy's deeksha. Among those who visited the fasting camp are several school children from Nalgonda as well as Telangana leaders and JAC leaders. Former Ministers Nagam Janardhan Reddy and T Jeevan Reddy, S Venugopalachary, MPs Gutha Sukhender Reddy, Komatireddy Rajgopal Reddy, Former MP Jitender Reddy, K Dileep Kumar, Telangana Praja Front leader Vimalakka met Venkat Reddy and expressed solidarity with his hunger strike.

Addressing the gathering, Jeevan Reddy and Nagam Janardhan Reddy blamed the delay of the formation of Telangana state on the politicians. They said that even though the MLAs who were elected in 2009 and the people of Seemandhra favor a separate Telangana state, it is the politicians who changed their stand. They said that if the politicians come forward leaving their differences aside, the Telangana state would soon be formed.

Nagam Janardhan Reddy lashed out against Panchayat Raj Minister K Jana Reddy and Suryapet MLA R Damodar Reddy for keeping silent on the issue. He alleged that Jana Reddy has often kept quiet after his visits to New Delhi and said that Damodar Reddy is aspiring for a Cabinet berth and hence not taking the Telangana movement seriously. He said that while Congress leaders are worrying about making Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Minister in 2014 elections, they are not bothered about the people in Telangana. He said that the comments of former APCC president D Srinivas who said that resignations will not fetch Telangana is unfortunate.

Jeevan Reddy said that the formation of Telangana state is the only issue that is not implemented after a formal announcement came from the ruling party. MP Rajagopal Reddy threatened that they will obstruct the proceedings of winter session of the Parliament if a favorable statement on Telangana is not announced.
