All roads to Tirupati are blocked by large groups protesting against the government's decision to proceed with the division of Andhra Pradesh. Devotees heading to the famous Tirumala temple are completing their journey by foot. Last night, the cabinet met in Delhi at the Prime Minister's residence and cleared the blueprint for the carving out of the Telangana region as India's 29th state. For nearly two months, the other two regions of Andhra Pradesh - Rayalseema and Coastal Andhra, jointly referred to as "Seemandhra" - have been witnessing daily demonstrations by those who demand a "United Andhra."
