- Plan to meet President, PM, Digvijay
- Divided over meeting the GoM
- Want Union Ministers and MPs to take a tough stand
Hyderabad: The Coordination Committee of ministers, MLAs and MLCs from the Seemandhra region while reiterating that they are bound by the resolution passed in the presence of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana that nothing short of United Andhra Pradesh was acceptable to them, have started feeling that it’s all over and there is nothing they could do to stop the bifurcation of the state.
About ten ministers and six legislators who met at Ministers Quarters for about two hours felt that if the MPs and Union Ministers take a tough stance then there was still a possibility of the process being put on hold.
The only thing they could do at the state level was to defeat the resolution when it comes before the Assembly, finance minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy told media. The meeting also expressed different views on whether or not the Seemandhra Congress leaders should meet the GoM and submit a report.
While ministers Anam, Kondru Murali and P Balaraju favoured meeting the GoM and extract a good financial package for the region, others like S Sailjanath and Ganta Srinivasa Rao felt that it would amount to accepting that they were not opposed to bifurcation. Some felt that they should be ready with some proposals to ensure that the rights of the people from the region do not get affected adversely.
