New Delhi: A day after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy reiterated that there was no change in his stand on keeping Andhra Pradesh united, AICC general secretary in-charge of Andhra Pradesh Digvijay Singh made it clear that the Chief Minister might have different views but he was not above the Congress Working Committee (CWC).

The Congress High Command has signalled that however high or mighty, no one can go against the decision of the CWC, he told the media. The party has taken a firm resolve to implement its decision, in letter and spirit. This comes as a setback to the proponents of keeping Andhra Pradesh united, as they are hoping against hope that somehow, they can manage to avert bifurcation.

Digvijay Singh said the Congress Working Committee (CWC), which was the highest policy-making body of the party, had taken the decision on bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Elaborate discussions were held and all parties, except one, had agreed to the decision.

The Congress and the government were keen that having taken the decision, it would go ahead and implement it, ahead of the upcoming simultaneous Assembly and parliament elections in 2014.

No one can accuse the party of hurtling through with its decision-making process. After the announcement made on December 9, 2009, by the then Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram, that the process of creation of Telangana will be set in motion, the party had put it on hold, following a wave of protests against it. Ever since, Justice B N Srikrishna Committee was set up, which went into the gamut of issues related to it. A number of parties, organisations, agencies and political parties were consulted.

Finally, after four years of such a prolonged process, the decision was taken. Now the Congress and the government are in no mood to go slow on the process.
