The CPI-ML (New Democracy) has  urged the Centre to expedite the process of forming Telangana state, address the problems that might arise out of the bifurcation and, at the same time, ensure harmony among the three regions.

Addressing a well-attended meeting of the party on ‘Tealngana State Formation: Problems and Solutions’ held at Sundarayya Kalanilayam here on Saturday, party state secretariat member P Suryam said their party had resolved at its recent five-day state convention to strive for creation of Telangana state.

‘’There were attempts to create apprehensions in the minds of people that we are moving away from TJAC which are untrue. We are very much part of the TJAC and will continue to be in future,’’ he said.

Cautioning the people to be wary of the Congress’s tricks, Suryam said that though the Congress Working Committee had announced Telangana state, it was yet to start the process for creation of the state. ‘’The announcement was made after all the parties had agreed to bifurcation. The main opposition party in Parliament, BJP, and its allies have agreed to vote in favour if Telangana bill is introduced in Parliament. Then why is the UPA Government delaying the process? Who is stopping it from speeding up the process? It seems the Congress is back to its tricks again,’’ he said, recalling what it had done during the 1969 agitation.

Recalling what had happened after the December 9, 2009 announcement on Telangana by the then Union home minister P Chidambaram, which was made after all the parties except two had given their consent, Suryam said it seemed that the Congress was waiting for the situation to reach the same level so that it could use the opportunities to its advantage. ‘’It is not the Congress alone but also the TDP and the YSRCP which are fanning the sentiments of the people of the other two regions for their own political gain,’’ he said and added that it was time people of Telangana continued their struggle till Telangana state was created.

The meeting was presided over by CPI-ML (New Democracy) state secretariat member DV Krishna. Party leaders Vemulapalle Venkatramayya, P Ranga Rao, JV Chalapati Rao, T Sudhakar, E Prabhakar Reddy, P Eswara Rao and G Jhansi also spoke.  Interestingly, Arunodaya artistes from West Godavari and other Andhra districts sang songs in support of Telangana. Several  party supporters from Rayalaseema and Andhra regions attended the meeting.

Statewide Meetings

The party will conduct meetings from the village to the district headquarters levels across the state from September 1 to 7.
