Nizamabad: The former minister and suspended TDP leader, Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy, here on Thursday went on hunger strike for unification of various political parties and people’s associations for achievement of separate Telangana State. His colleagues, Mr Venugopalachary, Mr Harishwar Reddy and Mr Jogu Ramanna also participated in the fast along with Dr Reddy.
Speaking at the hunger strike camp arranged at dharna chowk near the Collectorate, Dr Nagam said that their high command was none other than the people of the region. He also appealed to the resigned legislators of all parties to join the struggle.
