RAJNATH TO KCRHome Minister Rajnath Singh has asked Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief K Chandrasekhar Rao to ensure peace during any agitation launched by his party.
During a telephonic conversation yesterday, Singh told Rao that all agitation and demonstration programmes of the TRS should be peaceful, sources said.
The telephone was made after TRS called a bandh today in Telangana region to protest the move to merge villages in seven mandals of Khammam district with the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh for construction of the mega Polavaram project.
The shutdown call was given by TRS chief and Chief Minister-designate K Chandrasekhar Rao condemning what he termed as "injustice" to Telangana.
Rao's party Telangana Rashtra Samiti won 63 out of the 119 assembly seats in Telangana in the recent elections while Naidu's Telugu Desam Party, along with ally BJP, bagged 106 of the 175 assembly seats in Seemandhra.
