With the Congress announcing decision in favour of state bifurcation, Seemandhra TDP leaders appear to have decided to corner Congress leaders for their failure to prevent the division.

Says TDP Anantapur leader Payyavula Keshav: “The Congress MPs and Central ministers could not say a word when their party was pushing the Telangana proposal because they need to be in the good books of the party high command to protect their business interests.”

This, according to sources, would be the line the TDP would take in taking on the Congress in Seemandhra region. The leaders are building an argument that an answer is required why the Congress has not tabled Justice Srikrishna Committee report in Parliament.

“Let the report be tabled and let a discussion take place. Only then, a decision could be taken. Why the hurry?” Keshav asked. Seemandhra leaders have not yet officially announced their future course of action. “It was only the Congress which has announced its decision and not the UPA. Our reaction will depend on what decision the Cabinet, scheduled to meet on Wednesday would take,” a senior Seemandhra leader said.
