Hyderabad: There is no need for constitutional amendment for resolving Telangana issue, observed, TRS secretary general K Keshav Rao on Friday. The new State when formed would be included in Schedule-1 after Parliament approved the separate state bill as necessitated under Article 2 and 3 of the Constitution, he added. Talking to reporters at Telangana Bhavan on Friday, K Keshav Rao flayed AICC incharge for AP affairs to get facts right before making such statements. He pointed out this was the seventh meeting of the Congress Core Committee on Telangana issue. According to the senior TRS leader, Congress would be routed out of the region if it took anti-Telangana decision. Telangana community would wage a relentless fight and get the separate state themselves even if Congress ignored their aspirations, he said. TRS secretary general demanded Telangana Congress leaders to declare their action plan if the high command did not give clarity on the issue in the Core Committee meeting. KK appealed to people from Seemandhra to respect the sentiments of Telangana people and co-operate for demerger of the State.
