Rambabu said that the meeting has also demanded the Seemandhra Union Ministers, public representatives of both Congress and TDP to quit their posts immediately before the Telangana note comes up for Union Cabinet consideration. Apart from that, Chandrababu Naidu must state his stand clearly on the issue and should also quit immediately if he favours Samaikya Andhra,” he said and added: “He can no more continue like a cat on the wall.”
He further said that all JAC leaders who are involved in the Seemandhra agitation should also quit their positions to strengthen the stir for united AP.
