The meeting between the Telangana delegation and the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh didn't go well as expected, as the Prime Minister said that more time is needed for consultations in the Telangana issue, while TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao out rightly rejected the PM's plea to call off the strike.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, KCR said that he would go on a fast unto death hunger strike if the Centre doesn't come up with a time frame within which the Telangana State is formed. He also said that the ongoing 'Sakala Janula Samme' would be intensified.

The delegation said that the Prime Minister told them that he understood the demand, sentiments and aspirations of the people of Telangana, but said that a process is under way and further consultations in the issue are required. KCR urged the Prime Minister to direct the Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy to restored seven-hour power supply to farmers in Telangana.

A delegation of Congress leaders met with Prime Minister earlier in the day. The Prime Minister told them that he would try to resolve the issue as soon as possible and would take it up at the Congress core committee meeting with AICC president Sonia Gandhi.
