Congress MP Lagadapati Rajagopal has dramatically changed his "Fat till Death" into a "Discussion Centre" in the LB Stadium in Hyderabad. After his meeting with the MLAs (Including JC Diwakar Reddy) from the Andhra and the Rayalaseema region in the assembly he walked till the nearby LB stadium along with several Congress cadre and some MLAs and MLCs and sat for his proposed Fast which was later changed to "Discussion Centre". He threw an open challenge to the TRS and other leaders to come to the Discussion Centre. Lagadapati dramatically said that his was not "Fast" but putting up a "Discussion Centre (Charcha Vedika)" in LB Stadium after the police tried to spoil his efforts.
It was really a dramatic move as Lagadapati never announced his next move before. It was only in the evening that he announced that he would not carry on the proposed "Fast". This took everyone by surprise including the police, media and the government.
However the police refused to buy his argument that his was not a "fast" and arrested him and he is right now in police custody. He is right now being taken to Bollaram Police Station and there is a possibility that he may be produced before the Secunderabad magistrate today. This is the second time in the day for him to face arrest. Earlier in the day he was arrested in Shamshabad but later released.

- Sunny 9 years agoCentral govt is trying to split powerful states into smaller states.. to control and demand them.. This arrest is a part of it.. very illogical arrest.. No one can separate Andhra Pradesh.. If 10 people demand for separate state, now crores of people are asking for United Andhra.. How will govt. react??
