Seema Leaders to Approach Court to Stall Telangana
Hyderabad, July 31 (INN): Congress leaders from Rayalaseema on Wednesday threatened to move the court against the decision of Congress-led UPA Government to create Telangana by bifurcating Andhra Pradesh.
Talking to reporters after having a meeting with ministers and legislators from Rayalaseema region, Ministers TG Venkatesh, Erasu Pratap Reddy and SM Ahmadullah said that they might filed Public Interest Litigations in the High Court or Supreme Court against the State’s proposed division. Stating that they were still in favour of united Andhra Pradesh, they said efforts would be made to defeat the Telangana Bill in the State Legislative Assembly and Parliament.
However, if the Parliament passes the Telangana Bill, then the legislators from Rayalaseema were of the view that they should accept the ‘Rayala-Andhra’ State only if the region gets due share in Krishna waters and capital is built in Rayalaseema. However, if their conditions are not accepted, the leaders have decided to launch a movement for Greater Rayalaseema, Venkatesh said.
Venkatesh complained that the Rayalaseema region was always subject to injustices. Citing an example, he said that the Telangana was given Hyderabad while Polavaram Project in Andhra was declared a national project. What about our region? It got nothing,” he said.
