NEW DELHI: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao Monday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to press for his party’s demand for creation of new state of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh.
The meeting comes against the backdrop of activists intensifying the agitation in the Telangana region for a separate state and hours after Congress MPs and legislators from the region met the PM.
KCR, as the TRS chief is popularly known, and his supporters had Sunday staged a sit-in Sunday at the Raj Ghat memorial of Mahatma Gandhi in central Delhi to press for their demand.
The TRS chief is also scheduled to meet Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushma Swaraj later Monday. (IANS)
