Flaying the Congress and its president Sonia Gandhi for the manner in which the party-led UPA government at the Centre was going about the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday demanded that the Centre stop the state bifurcation process till a solution acceptable to both Seemandhra and Telangana people emerged.
For this, Naidu demanded that the Centre should convene a series of meetings with the stake-holders like JAC leaders, students and others, excluding politicians, from both Seemandhra and Telangana regons.
“The division process should be acceptable to people of both the regions,” Naidu stressed, while talking to newsmen here.
Raising serious objections over the way the Union Cabinet adopted the T-Bill, the TDP chief said that both Seemandhra and Telangana people were unhappy with the UPA’s decision.
Asked whether TDP would vote against draft T-Bill in the Assembly, Naidu said that his intention was not to vote against the Bill. “The state should be divided in a way that two brothers would divide property between themselves in a cordial atmosphere,” he explained.
