The YSRC Legislature Party has urged Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde to ensure that the Congress party as well as the Centre first announce their respective views on state bifurcation and conduct an all-party meet with all the stakeholders later to decide the issue.

In a letter, to the minister on Wednesday, party MLAs B Shobha Nagi Reddy, B Karunakar Reddy and G Babu Rao took strong exception to the remarks of AICC state affairs incharge Digvijaya Singh that the process of consultations was over and only the final decision is pending.

“While Congress leaders from different regions of the state are still speaking in many voices, the UPA government is maintaining a stony silence. The Centre is not telling even now whether it is going to bifurcate the state or not. Then, is it fair on the part of the Congress to decide the issue unilaterally?” they questioned.

The MLAs further felt that in all fairness, the Centre should first spell out its stance and later should hold a meeting with various parties and stakeholders so as to explore a viable solution acceptable to all the people.
