After Potti Sriramulu started his fasting on 1952 October 19th, Nehru announced in Rajya Sabha that, if all parties agree, they are ready to form Andhra State without Madras. But, Potti Sriramulu wanted Andhra State with Madras. He did not agree to the proposal by Nehru, and continued his fast-unto-death. After the death of Potti Sriramulu, Andhra state was formed without Madras.
I have already mentioned my comments on the similar one in the interview between Vundavalli Arun Kumar and Jaya Sankar.
