Pro-and anti-T demands echo in Assembly premises

Hyderabad: The demand for completion of the process of bifurcation and the demand to keep the State united echoed in State Assembly premises on Monday. The Rajya Sabha MP V Hanumantha Rao found fault with the government for booking cases against him for the comments he made at Tirupati on Saturday.

Talking to media, Rao said that he had expressed his willingness to apologise for his remarks but still it was shocking to know that the police had booked cases against him. Rao said his offer to apologise was not because he was afraid of going to jail but to ensure that the passions do not get raked up.

He said that after the attack on him at Alipiri, he had told the Chief Minister and the DGP not to book cases against the agitators. Denying that he had made any controversial statement, he said that he had only reiterated what the rule position was in regard to the government employees. He further felt that before booking cases against him, the police should have consulted him since he was an MP.

Meanwhile, Congress whip Jagga Reddy said that he would go to Delhi and meet the Antony committee members and express his opinion on why the State should not be divided. Minister for Primary Education S Sailjanath strongly defended the demand for Samaikyandhra and said that all the Congress leaders from Seemandhra region were united and will not agree for anything short of united Andhra. He said they would express their views very strongly before the Antony committee on Tuesday.

Another senior leader Paladugu Venkat Rao found fault with the party high command for not discussing the issue with the leaders of all regions before taking a decision at the CWC, on July 30. He said though the issue came for some kind of discussion whenever the AICC general secretaries in charge of the State came to Hyderabad, there was no serious deliberation on what the party proposes to do and how it would like to go forward.

Rao said even at this stage, the party should talk to all the leaders in detail about the clear roadmap before taking the issue forward, he added.
