Hyderabad, Feb 12: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, who spearheaded the campaign for the separate Telangana and persuaded the Centre into approving the division of Andhra Pradesh, has yet again began agitations as he feels betrayed.

Terming the government's Terms of Reference (ToR) given to the five-member Telangana committee as 'betrayal', KCR has urged all his party MPs, MLAs, and MLCs to resign in protest.

Responding to the seven-point ToR announced on Friday, Feb 12 morning, KCR angrily said, "The Centre has betrayed us once again."

Party sources have informed, “KCR has convened an emergency meeting of the TRS politburo to discuss the ToR of the Srijrishna Committee and chalk out future course of action."

While a Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) MLA from Nirmal in Adilabad has already started the protest against ToR by resigning, Congress legislators from Telangana are expected to meet on the matter on Friday, Feb 12 evening.

In the ToR, the government asked the Telangana Committee to consult all sections of the society including political parties, women, and organisations such as trade unions, on the matter of separate state against maintaining the present status of unified Andhra Pradesh.

The committee has been asked to submit a response by Dec 31, 2010.
