He warned the Congress and Telugu Desam Party against playing any games to stall or delay the process of formation of Telangana.

He told the people that the central government could not bring the bill in Parliament last year because of the "politics of conspiracy" of Andhra and Rayala Seema leaders.

"They came together within an hour to stop Telangana," he said.

He exuded confidence that such conspiracies and games will not work this time.

Prof Kodanda Ram, convenor of the Telangana Joint Action Committee, warned that nobody will be able to do any thing if all the people of Telangana come out of their home at the same time.
