‘No alternative to Telangana'

Staff Reporter

Satyanarayana Rao says Chief Ministership depends on fate


RTC chairman is confident that a separate state will be formed when ‘time comes'

He also says the state will not be formed with resignations of elected representatives


SANGAREDDY: Senior Congress leader and Road Transport Corporation (RTC) chairman M. Satyanarayana Rao has opined that formation of a separate Telangana state is not possible with resignations of elected representatives.

“Majority lies with them (Andhra people). As long as they are in majority it is not possible to bring pressure with resignations. What happened after all the 12 seats were won by the TRS in the last year bye-elections,” he asked while interacting with the media at Patancheru on Wednesday.

When time comes

However, the RTC chairman was confident that a separate Telangana state will be formed when ‘time comes'. “See what happened in the case of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh where Chief Ministers opposed the division of state. But finally these states are divided before their presence,” he said.

Separate state only

Referring to the comment made by Deputy Chief Minister C. Damodar Rajanarasimha that he was ready to even form a regional development council, the senior Congress leader said that nothing short of Telangana is acceptable for the people of the region.

They are taking their posts. “But how many more people have to die for Telangana. The Centre has to form a separate state and there is no alternative for that,” he said.

Chief ministership

Asked about the comments made by Chiranjeevi, that people want to see him as the Chief Minister, he reacted sharply, “Who does not want to become a Chief Minister in politics? Anybody can become Chief Minister if fate is there.”
