Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu will go on an indefinite hunger-strike in the national capital from tomorrow to protest against the Union Cabinet's decision regarding the proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu, who will arrive here tomorrow morning, will also interact with the media before beginning his stir in the afternoon, according to a TDP release.

On October 3, the Union Cabinet had decided to go ahead with the process for the creation of a separate Telangana state carved out from Andhra Pradesh.

The very next day, Naidu had in Hyderabad announced his plan for an agitation over the issue after accusing Congress of "ruining" the country and leaving Andhra Pradesh facing a "disaster" with the separate Telangana decision.

Naidu, whom observers say is now fighting a political battle for survival in the state of which he was once chief minister, has also accused Congress of entering into an "arrangement" with TRS and YSR Congress vis-a-vis the bifurcation decision.


Political pundits are predicting that while Congress and TRS would gain in Telangana, Jaganmohan Reddy's YSR Congress party could make big waves in the Seemandhra region.
TDP has decided to write to the leaders of all parties on the statehood issue and expose the alleged "nefarious politics" of the Congress.
