Telangana Political Joint Action Committee chairman Prof M Kodandaram on Tuesday condemned the decision of Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar of rejecting the resignations of Telangana MPs.
Talking to reporters after visiting the Secunderabad Railway Police Station, where he along with other leaders was summoned in connection with a case booked against him during Rail Roko agitation, Prof Kodandaram said that the Speaker’s decision was unfortunate. However, he asked the MPs not to get disheartened and continue the agitation for the statehood. He advised them to attend the ensuing winter session of the Parliament and raise the issue of separate Telangana.
Prof Kodandaram also demanded that Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu react on the recent statement of Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh wherein he stated that Telangana could not be formed without consensus. He said if Naidu remains silent on the issue, then it would be assumed that he was against statehood for the Telangana region.
The TP-JAC chairman also welcomed the statement of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati who proposed to divide her State in four parts. He asked Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to follow the suit and pass a resolution in the State Assembly for the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. He also demanded that Chandrababu Naidu support the Telangana resolution in the assembly. (INN)
