The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has strongly opposed the Rayala Telangana proposal and made it clear that it wants Telangana state with 10 districts and Hyderabad as its capital, without the two Rayalseema districts.

“We are hearing some specualtive news or media leaks that the UPA government is planning to create a new state with Telangana region and Kurnool and Anantapur districts of Rayalaseema. TRS will strongly oppose the proposed Royala Telangana. TRS will also not accept making Hyderabad as Union Territory or Central Administrative Territory,” TRS leader G Jagdeeshwar Reddy told reporters on Sunday.

He said it was nothing but a conspiracy against the people of Telangana to bring Royala Telangana proposal. “Neither the people of the two Rayalaseema districts nor the people in 10 Telangana districts asked for it,” he said.

The Congress high command should drop the Royala Telangana proposal immediately. Otherwise, the TRS would launch a massive agitation, he added.“The language and culture of Telangana people is different from Rayalaseema,” he said.

The Congress brought the Royala Telangana proposal only to divert Krishna waters to Andhra region, he alleged.The Centre should honour the December 9 statement and carve out Telangana state, he demanded. If any Congress leader, including deputy chief minister Damodar Rajanarasimha or panchayat raj minister K Jana Reddy accepted the Royala Telangana proposal, the consequences would be very serious, Jagadeeshwar Reddy warned.

He said Andhra people, in the event of state bifurcation, could use Hyderabad for one or two years as its capital.

Even after the bifurcation, the people of Seemandhra and people from other states could live happily in Hyderabad. The Telugus settled in other states too were not facing any problems, he said.
