Botsa Asks Cong HC to Reverse Decision on Bifurcation
Hyderabad, Aug 4 (INN): Accepting the demand of Seemandhra ministers and legislators, Pradesh Congress Committee Botsa Satyanrayana on Sunday began pursuing the Congress High Command to revise its decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.
Talking to reporters here, Botsa said that the Congress High Command should reconsider its decision on the bifurcation issue following the demand being made by Seemandhra leaders. However, he gave clear indications that the Centre might not consider his appeal. Hinting that the process of Telangana formation was already in motion, he said that the issues like sharing resources needs in-depth study. He said that the employment and educational opportunities for the Seemandhra population should be considered by the Centre. Further, there should be more clarity on status of Hyderabad.
Further, Botsa said that the Congress party would not issue a whip when the Telangana Resolution is presented in the Assembly. He said that the MLAs would be free to vote as per the sentiments of the people that they represent.
The PCC chief appealed to the people of Seemandhra region to maintain restrain and peace. He blamed the Telugu Desam Party and YSR Congress for the present unrest and said both the parties supported State’s bifurcation and were not blaming the Congress for the same. He also slammed TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao for his allegedly making provocative statements against Seemandhra employees. He said such statements do not suit the stature of a senior politician like KCR.
