Hyderabad, Dec 7 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah paid a visit to Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) chief K Chandrasekar Rao in hospital here last night and asked him to end his fast-unto-death, which has entered its third week.

Rao said he was firm about his demand for a separate Telangana state and indicated that only an assurance from the Prime Minister could change his decision.

Meanwhile, the shutdown called by the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti for a separate Telangana State entered its second day today.

Earlier on Sunday (December 6), the State Government withdrew charges filed against Rao that had resulted in his arrest.

As per the latest reports, a delegation of Congress ministers from the Telangana region will visit New Delhi today.

There are reports that the assembly session scheduled to start next week, may also be cut short due to the ongoing protests.

The state has been put on high alert due to the shutdown. (ANI)
