Advani: BJP supports Telangana statehood
LK Advani’s Jan Chetna Yatra entered Andhra Pradesh at Dolara village in Adilabad district on Tuesday evening. The BJP leader addressed road-side meetings at Icchoda, Nirmal and Armoor in Nizamabad district.
Advani said that his party supports formation of separate Telangana state. He demanded that the Congress-led UPA government introduce a bill on Telangana statehood in the coming winter session of Parliament and BJP would vote in favour of it.
He accused the Congress of deceiving the four crore Telangana people by backtracking on its announcement on Telangana made on December 9, 2009. He said that the result of the Banswada by-election reflects the aspirations of the Telangana people.
