Governor betrayer of Telangana: Madhu Yashki
MP Madhu Yashki Goud termed Governor ESL Narasimhan as a betrayer of the cause of separate Telangana. “He submitted distorted reports on Telangana.
The Chapter VIII in the Srikrishna Committee’s report is a draft prepared by the Governor,” he said. He said that they would urge AICC chairperson Sonia Gandhi not to extend the tenure of Narasimhan. “His term will end soon,” he said. The MP vowed to fight for separate Telangana till it was achieved.
MP Kesava Rao said that there were Telangana betrayers in all political parties.
“Lack of unity among Telangana protagonists is delaying formation of separate state,” he said.
