The Andhra Pradesh Governor, E.S.L. Narasimhan, has expressed anger over a news report carried by a vernacular daily on Friday which said that during his meetings with the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, the UPA Chairperson, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, and the home minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, in New Delhi on Thursday, the Governor had submitted a report suggesting that the Hyderabad Metropolitan area should become a Union Territory in the event of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
