Warangal: There is no need to take serious note of the remarks made by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy against Telangana formation, said BC Welfare Minister Baswaraju Saraiah and Warangal MP Siricilla Rajaiah.
They said the formation of separate Telangana was imminent and none could stop it at this juncture. However, the duo expressed regret over Kiran Kumar Reddy’s remarks who said that the Central should address the issues related to water, power and status of Hyderabad before taking the next step on the bifurcation of the State. Speaking to press persons here on Saturday, Minister Saraiah said, “I could not understand why Kiran Kumar Reddy spoke like that and I am working under him. He is my leader. Hence I can’t explain further.”
“I am not here to comment on the Chief Minister’s remarks,” he told when the press persons asked to react on the comments.
He said that the highest body of the UPA Government, the Congress Coordination Committee took a unanimous decision granting separate State to Telangana and none could change or stop it. The issues related to sharing of water and natural resources would be addressed by different constitutional wings of the country. Those who are opposing Telangana can lodge their grievances with A K Antony Committee, Saraiah advised. MP Rajaiah, ridiculing the CM’s concerns on sharing of water and resources following the bifurcation of the state. Taking serious exception to the remarks of Kiran Kumar Reddy, he said, “It is very sad to speak against the decision of CWC and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, that too before the media.”
Kiran Kumar is the Chief Minister of entire state and speaking one-sided is very wrong. He should have acted wisely and obey the directions of the party high command, Rajaiah said.
The Congress MP further said that the safety of the Seemandhra population in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana would be taken care by the new Government and no one needs to worry about it. Meanwhile, Union Minister of State for Social Justice P Balaram Naik tried to avoid answer when the press persons asked him to comment on Kiran Kumar Reddy’s remarks and said, “Our leader Sonia Gandhi will solve all the problems.”
