- Rayala Telangana under study by GoM?
- MIM demand gathers momentum
- Diggy asks TDP, YSRCP, CPM to present their views
- Rules out change of CM
The sudden demand for Rayala Telangana with two districts consisting of Kurnool and Anantapur by the MIM and the support for the demand from ministers TG Venkatesh, Erasu Pratap Reddy and senior leaders like J C Diwakar Reddy has given rise to speculation that it was being done at the behest of the Congress high command to gauge the pulse of the people of the region before the GoM gives its recommendations on bifurcation of the state. The statement made by the AICC general secretary in-charge of state affairs Digvijay Singh that this issue was under the purview of the GoM and that it was gathering the opinion of people and political parties had given more credence to the speculations of the possibility of Rayala Telangana being considered by the GoM. However, Digvijay Singh on Friday made it clear that the Government of India was very serious about completing the process of bifurcation at the earliest. He said the T Bill could be sent to the Assembly in the fourth week of November. Asked whether the T-Bill will be introduced in the ensuing winter session of parliament, Singh replied, "I hope so."

Ruling out change of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Digvijay Singh said he was duly elected by the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) and would continue in the post till the process was completed. The Chief Minister recognizes the party line and he would not go against it, Digvijay Singh said.
