Union minister of state for communications and IT Killi Kruparani on Thursday created a furore among Congress leaders with her remarks over the issue of regionalism.

The Union minister, during her maiden visit to Gandhi Bhavan, the state Congress headquarters here on Thursday, said, “The Congress opposes any sort of division based on caste, creed, religion, language and region.

Any type of division of society would only weaken the country. We had earlier seen Khalistan terrorism in Punjab, which tried to destabilise the country.

” When reporters wanted to know whether her remarks over division of any region or society also applied to the Telangana issue, she appeared taken aback and, paused for a while.

Then, regaining her composure, she said she did not want to comment on the Telangana issue as it was under the perusal of the Congress high command.
