Rao's decision came at the Joint Action Committee meeting held in Hyderabad on Thursday night, hours after the Srikrishna Commission was made public.
"I don't care even if I lose my life. I will put pressure on the government to pass the bill for the creation of Telangana," Rao said.
The JAC said that the time for talks over the demand for a separate state was over. "No more committees, commissions or talks with the Union government. The government has to now keep its word," it said.
Home Minister P Chidambaram had said on December 9 that the process for formation of a seperate Telangana had begun. The JAC said that if this was not done, they would start a peaceful non-cooperation movement in the region till their demands were fulfilled.The JAC has also decided to support the bandh call given by pro-Telangana students for Friday. It also demanded that para-military forces should be withdrawn from the Osmania university campus.
