Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief K Chandrashekhar Rao and 14 other MLAs are likely to go on hunger strike from November 1 over the issue of separate statehood.
The decision was taken at a meeting between KCR and TRS MLAs on Monday.
The final decision, however, will be taken on the basis of the situation at that time.
Meanwhile, freedom fighters from Telangana are also slated to go on hunger strike from November 1 under the leadership of Konda Lakshman Bapuji.
