Advani ji demanded that the Congress-led UPA government must introduce a bill on Telangana statehood in the coming winter session of Parliament.  He also expressed deep concern over the suicide of students and youths for the cause of separate state.

On the issue of corruption, Sri Advani ji cautioned the party workers to not to succumb to corruption. He said, “There is a tendency for weakness to come into politics and because of small slip-ups the party’s fight against corruption can be diluted at the Centre.”

Mentioning the by-poll results, Advani jis aid that the UPA’s second tenure is dominated by corruption. The government should recognise there was a seething anger against the Congress. The UPA government should understand the real meaning of the election results — “It’s a writing on the wall, an electorate’s warning served to the government of the day”  he said.

Yatra moves into Medak district from Nizamabad and will reach Hyderabad by evening.
