The Telangana Rashtra Samithi has decided to support the No Confidence Motion proposed to be introduced by the Telugu Desam Party against the Kiran Kumar Reddy Government.

Etela said the TRS has been supporting the move as the State Government has failed to provide relief to the drought-hit farmers in the Telangana region. Further, the Congress-led UPA Government has failed to honour its commitment on the formation of Telangana and the state government has used Preventive Detention Act against those who participated in the Telangana agitation.

In the meeting chaired by TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, the TRSLP has decided to introduce a Telangana Resolution in the assembly session. Etela said that the TRS would stall the proceedings if the Telangana Resolution was not introduced. He said that the Telangana Resolution would also expose the Congress and TDP MLAs from the region, if they don't support move.

The TRS Legislature Party also demanded that the State Government declare entire Telangana region as drought-hit where five to six farmers have been committing suicide every day. It also demanded waiver of farm loans, input subsidy cost of Rs 15,000 per acre and supply of free seeds and fertilisers.

Reacting on Home Minister P Chidambaram's announcement that an all-party meeting would be convened on the Telangana issue, Etela Rajender said that there was nothing new in the Home Minster's statement. He said an all-party meeting held on December 7, 2009, have clearly supported the statehood demand and Chidambaram himself made the announcement of starting the process for formation Telangana on December 9. However, the Centre went back on its promise later, he said.
