"The State Revenue has fallen alarmingly due to the agitations for a separate Telangana and united Andhra Pradesh," Rosaiah, who arrived here on a day's visit to the East Godavari district, told reporters.

He said around Rs 100 crore revenue was lost per day and a detail information will be available shortly.

The chief minister said some industrialists, IT companies and film industry have expressed their desire to shift their business to other states.

"The government is ready to provide all protection, but some companies are not showing interest to stay back," he said.

"We (AP Congress leaders) will abide by the decision taken by the High Command over the Telangana issue," he said.

The Chief Minister urged the agitators not to take law in their hands by damaging public and private properties.

Replying to a query over imposition of President's rule in the state, Rosaiah said the Centre will decide what action to be taken.

He was received at the airport by District Collector Gopalakrishna Diwadi, District Superintendent of Police Y Nagi Reddy, State Ministers P Subhas Chandra Bose and other officials at the airport.

During his visit, Rosaiah will unveil the statue of late Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy at Yanam and participate in the Yanam Tourism Festival programmes, the officials said.
