MIM: Rayalaeema plus Telangana if AP is split
The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) stated that if the bifurcation of the Andhra Pradesh state became inevitable, the party would prefer ‘Greater Telangana’ comprising Telangana and Rayalaseema areas. It would however prefer the state to be united.
The MIM also stated that it wanted Hyderabad to be the capital of Greater Telangana, and opposed making the city into a separate state, or making it as a Union Territory
The MIM party stated its stand in a 150-page report submitted to the Justice Srikrishna panel on Sunday by the party chief Asaduddin Owaisi.
“Our party is of the considered opinion that in the ideal situation the continuance of status quo, that is, united Andhra Pradesh state is in the overall interest of the minorities,” the MIM report stated.
