Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy should intervene to call a special Assembly session to discuss the Sri Krishna Committee report and adopt a resolution in favour of united Andhra Pradesh to be sent to the Centre, Andhra Pradesh Rastra Parirakshna Vedika (APRPV), a non-political organisation, has said.

The APRPV will conduct seminars in Tirupati and Guntur on October 3 and 5 respectively to tell the people about the difficulties involved in dividing the state.

Addressing a press conference, it demanded that the MPs and Union ministers should resign immediately to mount pressure on the Centre to reconsider its decision on the bifurcation of the state. However, it was of the view that MLAs should refrain from resignations to express their opposition to state division in the Assembly.

“The announcement of the CWC decision to carve out Telangana state is not in accordance with the law, because the Centre did not think about State Reorganisation Commission to divide the state,” said former High Court judge justice Lakshman Reddy, president of APRPV.

On the city police rejecting permission for seminars on the bifurcation issue in Hyderabad, he said, “It is really saddening that people do not have the right to express their views in Hyderabad. The chief minister and the government should take note of this.”

Further, he appealed to all political leaders across the state not to make provocative speeches and urged them to bring back the lost glory to the state.
