Jagan begins fast in Chanchalguda jail

With a demand that the centre should maintain status quo if it cannot do justice to all regions while dividing the state, the YSR Congress party President YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Sunday began his fast in Chanchalguda jail.  
 
Sources said,  that  Jagan sat on diksha from this morning in his  room without taking breakfast offered regularly in the jail. During his fast, he preferred to read news papers and also did not come out from his room.      
 
It may be recalled that YSRCP honorary president and Jagan's mother, YS Vijayamma fasted for six days to press the centre to revoke its decision on the bifurcation of state. However, she was forced to call of her strike after doctors declared her condition critical.
 
Unable to see his mother suffer, Jagan requested Vijayamma to end her fast. However, understanding how important it is to stand by the people of state, Jagan decided to take forward the fast initiated by his mother.

"I would pick up the fast from where she has left and begin indefinite fasttomorrow as the two main parties (Congress and TDP) are maintaining silence with an eye on votes and seats," Jagan told his party leaders who called on him at the Chanchalguda jail
