Hyderabad, Sept 27: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao on Monday, Sept 26 threatened to attack houses of public representatives of the Congress if they remain calm over power-cut to farmers in Telangana.

KCR also urged the state minister, state legislators and MPs of Congress party to immediately resign in support of separate Telangana state.

"We are asking Congress' public representatives not to cooperate with the chief minister who is deliberately cutting power supply to farmers of Telangana. If they don't cooperate, we will attack their houses," K. Chandrasekhara Rao said.

Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC), which is leading the Telangana movement for a separate statehood has also planned to block the houses of public representative of the Congress party on Sept 29.

The government has imposed heavy power-cut to farmers in Telangana in the wake of strike in the state-owned Singareni Collieries, which has affected coal production and power generation in thermal power stations.

Meanwhile, the domestic sector is already facing a load-shedding of around two to six hours every day. The authorities have also decided to announce a power holiday for industries in a week and impose four hour cuts during peak hours every day.

"If need be, cut the power to industry and domestic sector. We have to undergo some difficulties for achieving Telangana. I request industries and people to cooperate," KCR said.

The TRS chief also blamed Andhra Pradesh Chief minister Kiram Kumar Reddy on the issue and said that this is a step by the government to weaken the movement.

"The hydel power projects have more capacity because the reservoirs are full but they are not being used even to 50 per cent of their capacity," he said.

KCR appealed all supporters to gear up the movement and said that fight will continue till the separate state is formed.
