Telangana Protestors
Hyderabad, Oct 25: Horns that scream 'Jai Telangana' when honked have become a rage across the Telangana region.

Motorists in places like Warangal, Nalagonda, Khammam, Medak, Hyderabad and few other places have been putting in horns that scream 'Jai Telangana' when honked.

"We have recently started installing these horns. These are not legal. Despite a warning, people insist on these horns, so we have to oblige. I had borrowed the tune from a friend who had installed them in two-wheelers," said Md Safi, owner of the store that sells the 'Jai Telangana' horns in Hyderabad.

"I got it done for Rs 250. It gets the message across and now few of my friends have also installed the horn," said P Prakash who had the horn installed on his motorbike.

"My bike is with my brother in Bengaluru, but as soon as it comes here, I will get the horn installed. We want everyone to know that we support Telangana," said Raju, a student.

"Such kind of horns are illegal. So far, we have not caught any one with these horns but, they will be fined for using such horns. We didn"t know such horns existed. We will keep an eye on them," said MV Srinivas Rao, inspector of police (traffic), Nalgonda.

Meanwhile, K Chandrasekhar Rao, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief and senior colleagues in the party will soon go on a 72-hour fast from Nov 1, said party sources.

The step comes following government's plan to have a grand celebration on Nov 1- the formation day of Andhra Pradesh. The day, however, has been seen as a betrayal day by pro-Telangana groups.

Sources also reveal that Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, senior Congress leader and former minister will also go on a fast from Nov 1 and convert his fast into an indefinite with the single demand for the formation of Telangana.
