People from Seemandhra asking why leaders were not raising united AP issue in House: Gali
Condemns BJP leader Kishan Reddy's comments against TDP president Chandrababu Naidu
Devising strategy:Telugu Desam Party legislators from Andhra-Rayalaseema regions led by Gali Muddukrishnama Naidu holding meeting at the Telugu Desam Legislature Party office on the Assembly premises in Hyderabad on Thursday.
HYDERABAD: Telugu Desam legislators belonging to Andhra/ Rayalaseema and Telangana regions held parallel meetings in separate rooms at the TD Legislature Party office and offered to resign their posts for their respective causes.
The Seemandhra MLAs, who earlier stalled the Assembly proceedings by raising slogans, made it clear that they would continue it tomorrow too in deference to the wishes of the people of the region. But their Telangana counterparts led by Nagam Janardhan Reddy found fault with them for holding placards in the House.
Speaking on behalf of Seemandhra MLAs, G. Muddukrishnama Naidu said people in the region were asking them why they were not raising their voice in favour of united Andhra Pradesh.
They were prepared for any sacrifice including resignations.
No need for meeting
The meeting of the MLAs felt there was no need for the Union Home Minister to hold another meeting on the issue as there was no change in the stand taken by political parties.
It was for the Centre to take a decision on the issue and Srikrishna Committee report.
He condemned Bharatiya Janata Party leader G. Kishan Reddy's comments against Leader of the Opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu and clarified that the BJP had not favoured Telangana when National Democratic Alliance was in power at the Centre.
BJP leader L. K. Advani had only spoken of how the demand for Telangana could not be conceded as it had the capital, Hyderabad with it.
On the other hand, Mr. Janardhan Reddy said the MLAs too were ready to quit and wondered how could there could be a demand for united AP when people of Telangana favoured separate State.
He wanted Seeamandhra MLAs to specify injustice done to their region in terms of employment and distribution of water. Criticising Congress MP Kavuri Sambasiva Rao for his comments, he said for people of Telangana, the struggle was for self-respect and self-rule which was denied to them for over five decades.
