Andhra CM calls for review of decision

By The Assam Tribune

HYDERABAD, Nov 15 � Stepping up his campaign for a �united� Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy today urged the Centre to reconsider its decision to bifurcate the state and create a separate Telangana state, reports PTI.

�When a decision is taken, it should benefit people. People of both regions should hail that decision. But unfortunately, it is felt by all that this decision may not benefit a large section of people. So, we wish that the Centre reconsider its decision and keep the state united. They are trying to divide the state expeditiously, but all of us (Seemandhra Congress leaders) are trying to prevent the division,� he said.

Reddy was speaking at a meeting organised in the West Godavari district of the coastal Andhra region as part of the state government�s mass-contact programme called �Rachabanda�.

However, the AP CM defended the Congress party over the issue and said that the opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress, along with others, should�be held responsible for the Centre�s decision to divide the state.

�Unfortunately, all parties had given letters to the Congress in support of division (of the state). I fail to understand what (TDP Chief) Chandrababu Naidu has been saying for the last 100 days (since the CWC decision in favour of division). He says he favoured equal justice to�all. Does it mean division or unity? He does not have the ability to stand for the unity of Telugus. He had a big role in division. There should be clarity of thought for someone who has been Chief Minister for nine years. As if the Centre does not know, YSR Congress Party said you can divide it under Article 3 (of the Constitution). Now, they talk of unity. Congress took a decision because all these people agreed,� he said.

Speaking in Visakhapatnam earlier, Reddy said that he would strive hard to keep Andhra Pradesh �united� for the benefit of people of all regions in the state.

He said that the division would create problems for both regions on various issues, like sharing of water and power supply.
