"The bifurcation issue is in the hand of the Centre," Rosaiah, who is currently in New Delhi, told reporters.

The Chief Minister had already met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and other top party leaders. He said he had briefed them about the situation in the state. "I have also personally appealed to (TRS Chief) Chandrasekhara Rao to end his fast."

The Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh was on the boil on Wednesday as massive demonstrations to press the demand for separate statehood and the fast-unto-death by Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhara Rao entered the 11th day. Doctors said Rao was in a serious condition.
