Seemandhra Ministers, MLAs and MLCs begin fast
September 2, 2013 - Hyderabad
Demanding the Congress central leadership to roll back the bifurcation decision, Ministers and MLAs belonging to Seemandhra begin day long fast on Tuesday at the Mahatma Gandhi Statue in Assembly premises.
Ministers numbering 12, MLAs 29 and MLCs 6 are participating the daylong fast amidst tight security. This is the first time that Seemandhra leaders have taken up a fast in Hyderabad opposing the CWC's decision. It may be recalled that some of the Ministers from the region have submitted their resignations to the Chief Minster in tune with the aspirations of the people in protest against the bifurcation of the State which are yet to be accepted.
