Fasting MPs refuse to budge till withdrawal of cases

Hyderabad: The fasting Congress MPs from Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh today made it clear that they will not call off their protest until all police cases against the students are withdrawn.

State Social Welfare Minister B Sariah, hailing from Telangana, held talks with fasting MPs this morning, but they categorically spelt out their intention about not ending their “Satyagraha”.

“We will not call off our Satyagraha till the government withdraws all the cases against the students,” Congress Rajya Sabha member K Kesava Rao told reporters.

Responding to criticism that Congress MPs are indulging in ‘political posturing’, he said there was no politics involved in the fast, and that it is an effort to bring moral pressure on the government.

The Telangana Congress MPs began their fast yesterday demanding withdrawal of all police cases against the students registered during recent Telangana agitation.
