The eleven-day bus yatra kicked off by TDP in Tirupati would traverse across Rayalaseema, coastal Andhra regions and Srikakulam, seeking support for a unified state.

"We will meet various sections of the society during the tour and raise awareness on the need for a united Andhra Pradesh. We will expose how Sonia Gandhi decided to cut the state into pieces like a cake on her birthday," senior TDP MLA G Muddukrishnam Naidu said in Tirupathi.

Chiranjeevi also reached his assembly constituency Tirupati and decided to conduct a campaign, informing people about the benefits of staying united.

Meanwhile, the fast-unto-death launched by Congress MP Lagadapati Rajagopal in Vijayawada entered the fifth day while TDP MLA D Umamaheswar Rao remained in the hospital, where he was forcibly shifted by the police yesterday.

In Kadapa, congress MLC Y S Vivekananda Reddy, brother of late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy continued his fast on the fourth day today, in support of united Andhra Pradesh.

His wife Y S Sowbhagyamma and three MLAs joined him in the fast yesterday.
Rallies, road blockades and other forms of protests continued across the Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra regions.
