TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao has been demanding a separate Telangana state on the grounds that the region was backward and that successive governments have done injustice to the Telangana people.
However, some reports in the media stated that contrary to the claims of the TRS, the Srikrishna committee report has identified tremendous growth in key sectors like electricity, irrigation, agriculture and rural development in the Telangana region.
KCR now wants Telangana state on the grounds of self-respect and self-pride. He is in consultations with his party and TJAC leaders and will soon announce self-rule slogan for a separate state. KCR has already said that T-state should be given irrespective of the findings of the Srikrishna committee report.
