Cong Seemandhra Leaders to Hold Dharna in Delhi

Hyderabad, Aug 11 (INN): Congress leaders from Seemandhra region will organise a massive dharna in New Delhi on Tuesday to protest against the proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

Talking to reporters in the Assembly premises here on Sunday, Minister S Sailajanath said that all Congress leaders would assemble and meet in Delhi on Monday evening. The next day, they would make a representation with High Power AK Antony Committee on the implications of bifurcation. They would also participate in a dharna at Jantar Mantar to oppose State’s division.

Sailajanath claimed that the Centre was softening its stand on the bifurcation issue. He said that the Congress Working Committee had put a seal on deliberations. However, continuous agitation forced the Centre to appoint a committee to hold consultation and hear the grievances of Seemandhra people. He hoped that the Antony Committee would take a serious view of their representation.

The minister also slammed TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu for maintaining silence on the bifurcation issue. He also condemned the YSR Congress party for not making its stand clear on the Telangana State.
