According to Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, the Seemandhra leaders will be in Delhi for two days. Rao said that it was not proper on the part of some Seemandhra MPs and Union Ministers to accept defeat and say that all was over and that if Hyderabad was accorded the status of UT problem would be solved. The issue was not just about the status of Hyderabad, he explained. The leaders should work in accordance with the aspirations of the people of the region or else they would have to face the people’s wrath.
The treatment that was meted out to the Union Minister JD Seelam was just a small trailor sort of thing, he said. Speaking to media at Congress legislature party office on Tuesday, Rao exuded confidence that bifurcation of the State will not take place before 2014 elections. Replying to a question about Digvijay Singh’s repeated statement that the Congress leaders had agreed to abide by the decision of the party high command on the issue of separate State and hence should fall in line, Rao said it was Digvijay Singh who should change and stop asking the pro-united Andhra MPs not to resign. He said it was Digvijay Singh who was trying to confuse the leaders and people of Seemandhra with different statements on the issue.
Asked if Pawan Kalyan, brother of K Chiranjeevi was contemplating to join TDP, Rao said that Pawan had filled the vaccum created by mega star after he joined politics. He said he personally feels that Pawan should not take plunge into active politics as he was not cut out for it, Rao said.
