Telangana separation will complicate, say Seemandhra leaders

Published on Jun 29 2013 // Featured, Political News

Congress leaders from Seemandhra says several complications would arise if the bifurcation process was started. In the backdrop of speculation that the Centre was all set to announce its decision on the statehood issue the Congress leaders felt that no credence need be given to media reports that the Centre had already decided to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

The Seemandhra leaders strongly opposed the idea of Rayala-Telangana claiming that such a move was not in anyone’s interests.They plan to hold a public meeting with the participation of people from Kurnool and Anantapur to send across the message that they would oppose inclusion of the two districts in Telangana, in the event of bifurcation. Similar meetings are planned in Tirupati, Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada.

They said a delegation led by Ministers S. Sailajanath, Ganta Srinivasa Rao and former Minister Gade Venkata Reddy would visit Visakhapatnam on Sunday, June 30 to submit a memorandum to AICC secretary Singh reasoning why the State should remain united and highlight the dangers of bifurcation. They plan to meet him again in Hyderabad on July 1.
