He appealed to Congress high-command and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to start the process of Telangana formation without delay.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K. Chandrasekhar Rao tried to calm down the flared up situation following his remarks. He made these remarks during the ‘Sakala Jana Bheri’ rally at Nizam College grounds.

KCR requested Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to start the process of Telangana formation without delay, on the plea that delaying the issue will create dissensions among people.

When asked about the stance of his party over YSRCP-sponsored ‘Samaikya Shankharavam’ as announced by its president YS Jagan, KCR said “anything is possible, as the Centre is keen on solving the issue.”

He took exception to remarks by BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya and CPI state secretary K. Narayana. KCR also criticized Congress MLA Anam Vivekananda Reddy for calling him a “demon”.
