Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday said he would launch an indefinite hunger strike in New Delhi from October 7 against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

"Congress has ruined the country and Andhra Pradesh. It has sought to bifurcate the state without addressing the concerns of Telugu people. Hence, I will go on an indefinite fast to expose Congress," Chandrababu told a press conference.

"I will draw the attention of all parties at the national level to the crisis created by Congress in Andhra Pradesh. Congress has entered into match-fixing with TRS and YSRC as
well as conspired to divide Andhra Pradesh. I am launching a political battle to expose Congress," he said.

Congress has totally overlooked the 66-day agitation by the people of the Seemandhra region and made no effort to resolve the crisis, he charged.
