BJP cadres from Rayalaseema region where intense protests are on against creation of Telangana, are looking forward to the public meeting of Narendra Modi scheduled on August 11 in a bid to extricate them out of a rock and hard place situation they found themselves in over the separate statehood issue.
Local cadres are undecided over whether to support protagonists of unified Andhra Pradesh or continue their allegiance to Telangana as has been frequently pronounced by the Central leadership.
Some of the local leaders said they were feeling isolated in the region as supporters of united Andhra Pradesh who have upped the ante for the demand are looking down at BJP as the "culprit" for supporting separate state.
They alleged that senior leaders of the region misguided the cadres in view of ongoing agitations for united Andhra Pradesh.
"We hope that the state leadership will come out with a useful proposal which may insulate us from the culprit tag after Modi's rally in Hyderabad on August 11," a local leader said on condition of anonymity.
The Gujarat chief minister is scheduled to address the public rally in Hyderabad on August 11.
