Two Congress leaders from Telangana, former PCC chief D Srinivas and Rajya Sabha member Palvai Govardhan Reddy, on Thursday, said their party high command was leaning towards formation of Telangana state.
They called upon their Seemandhra counterparts not to spoil the present congenial atmosphere between the people of Seemandhra and Telangana by issuing provocative statements.
Speaking to mediapersons at his residence here on Thursday, Srinivas said he believed that his party high command had already taken a decision on the T-issue.
Making an indirect reference to the recent remarks of the TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao that the Congress high command had started enacting a new drama on the T-issue to derive political mileage in the ensuing elections to local bodies, the former PCC boss said, “It is meaningless to say that the Congress, which has a long history, would formulate such cheap game plans to win panchayat polls.”
“I am sure the issue of Telangana will be settled in a few weeks, once and for all,” he added. He also exuded confidence that if a resolution is introduced in the Assembly, it would be passed unanimously.
Meanwhile, Palvai Govardhan Reddy called on the Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde in Delhi on Thursday.
After the meeting, the Rajya Sabha member said, “After meeting Shinde, I am fully convinced that the Centre is in favour of dividing the state,” said Reddy.
