Reiterating that he was for a Unified Andhra Pradesh, finance minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy on Thursday ‘predicted’ that people of Rayalaseema would demand a separate Rayalaseema state, if a separate Telangana state was carved out.

If such a situation arose, the state would be thrown into political instability and regional imbalances would widen further, he told newsmen here.

‘’I had mentioned the same in my report to the party elders,’’ he added.

The minister was in Nellore to oversee the party’s preparedness for the ensuing panchayat elections in the district.

He said that it was not possible for any government to come to a conclusion overnight over the state bifurcation issue as it was laborious process.

He said that the Congress Working Committee (CWC) decision on the issue would not be the final one.

The recommendation of the CWC had to be placed before the UPA allies to seek their opinion, he added.
