Cash-for-vote: Amar Singh bail rejected, to be re-arrested

The daylong speculation that Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K Chandrasekhar Rao will go on an indefinite hunger strike, reminiscent of the one he had undertaken in 2009, came to an end in the evening with the TRS supremo allowing himself to be persuaded against the move by his family members, Telangana Joint Action Committee leaders and Congress steering committee chairman K Keshava Rao.The TRS chief who was keen on undertaking the fast finally decided to drop the proposal when the TJAC too told him that there was no need for him to take up the hunger strike since the situation did not warrant it.

They reportedly told him that if situation comes to such a pass, they could take a call on it, sources said.Throughout the day, the TRS camp was agog with excitement over the possibility of their leader going on fast. Though some did not like the idea others felt if he undertakes fast, it would take the movement to the next level.Those who did not want him to go on fast were mainly his family members. His son and legislator KT Rama Rao confirmed his father’s intention but said he was against it. “As family members we discouraged him since he is not as healthy as he was in 2009.

Another reason is that since the movement is very strong now, we are advising him against the idea as his intervention in the form of a fast is not necessary now,” Rama Rao told newsmen.As if in reply to the buzz in Telangana since Monday night that KCR would go on a hunger strike, Chandrasekhar Rao himself raised the issue at a public meeting organised by the employees of the power utilities where he said he would decide on the fast after discussing it with the TJAC and other leaders. In fact, KCR had held consultations with his family members and party leaders in this regard on Monday night.But KTR said: “We do not want a repeat of the mental torture that the government had subjected me and other family members when KCR was on the hospital bed.

We were told constantly that his health was failing and that it might take a bad turn any time. It was only to break our nerve,” Rama Rao said.K Keshava Rao, who made a sudden visit to KCR’s residence on Tuesday afternoon after learning about his intention to go on fast, advised him against it. “I have told him that the Congress party is serious about resolving the tangle and about the promise made by AICC general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad that he would complete the process of consultations by the end of this month,” Keshava Rao said.
