Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party on Saturday said that the Congress party’s ‘unilateral’ decision to bifurcate the State will turn into a ‘man-made disaster’ if the aspirations and concerns of people from all the regions are left unaddressed.
In an open letter, party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy said it was not fair on Congress part to play with the future of the people of this State. If division is inevitable, it should be done in a manner which is agreeable to all stakeholders and no injustice is meted out to anyone. If the party was unable to do the justice, then the party should leave the State, untouched, he said.
Explaining the reasons for opposing the bifurcation of State, he said the Congress party’s unilateral posturing has put the State in disarray and legislators across the party line have submitted their resignations hoping that it would bring change in the Congress thinking process.
The letter said that Congress made the issue of the division of the State as its own party affair and the latest proof is AK Antony Committee coming on to the stage. Instead of appointiang a government committee where all stakeholders can present their respective viewpoint, it has gone domestic by ppointing the Antony Committee without showing any respect to the sentiments of the people.
Referring to Hyderabad, she said that it took nearly 60 years to build the city after Madras was denied to Andhra people 60 years ago. About 60 per cent of the State revenue comes from the State capital. After completing education, students of all regions look towards Hyderabad for their prospective careers. “We are asked to leave Hyderabad in the next 10 years, six decades after the city was built together. We are being asked to build a similar city in ten years elsewhere.
