Hyderabad, Dec 22 : Film stars Jr NTR and Kalyan Ram on Wednesday called on Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, who is on hunger fast for the cause of farmers since last Friday, and appealed to him to withdraw his fast considering his ‘precarious’ health condition.
Addressing media persons after enquiring about Mr Naidu’s health with doctors at NIMS Hospital, Jr NTR said the TDP leaders has refused to withdraw his fast until the government comes out with a concrete assurance to announce a revised financial package for rain-hit farmers.
He revealed that Mr Naidu was very weak and was still refusing to get fluids administrated and undergo treatment.
Condemning the anti-farmer stand of state government, the popular film actor asked the government to give up adamant stand considering the gravity of the situation and Mr Naidu’s falling health condition.
Mr Jr NTR stated that Mr Naidu launched the fast only to help the distressed farmers, who were in fix due to state government’s indifferent attitude over the announcement of meagre financial package.
Both Jr NTR and Kalyan Ram appealed to Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to respond properly and make efforts for solving the farmers’ imbroglio considering the serious nature of Mr Naidu’s health.
