Subscribe to Oneindia News

Hyderabad, Dec 16 (ANI): The Centre's nod to initiate the process for the formation of the Telangana State, now seems to have split actor-turned politician Chiranjeevi's Praja Rajyam Party (PRP).

Chiranjeevi was likely to make an announcement in favour of a united Andhra Pradesh today, but now faces a split from his party members.

Chiranjeevi is at present consulting his party MLAs over the concerned matter.

Sixteen PRP MLAs belonging to the coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions had tendered their resignations last week in support of a united Andhra.

However, there are reports that Telangana district leaders of PRP are up in arms and those belonging to the Warangal and Karimnagar have already quit.

Meanwhile, the students of Osmania University and Kakatiya University have declared that they would boycott the movies featuring Chiranjeevi and his family, if his party talks of a united Andhra Pradesh.

Chiranjeevi had fought the Lok Sabha elections this year on a promise of separate statehood for people belonging to the Telangana region. (ANI)
