Hyderabad, Sept 29 (INN): Guntur MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao on Sunday claimed that the Congress party would win at least 20 seats in the Seemandhra region if it avoids bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
Talking to reporters, Rayapati said that the division of State would cause irreparable damage to the Congress party in both coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. However, if the party withdraws the decision taken by the Congress Working Committee on bifurcation of State to carve out Telangana, then the Congress would surely sweep the next general elections in both the regions.
Rayapati also made it clear that he would remain in the Congress party and would convince the High Command against bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. (INN)
