The Centre’s decision to form Telangana state disappointed many prominent businessmen from Andhra Pradesh, settled in Bangalore.

According to Radhakrishna Raju, chairman of Telugu Vignaga Samithi, the decision will have an adverse impact on development of Andhra Pradesh. “Telugu-speaking people have been divided. The development of Andhra Pradesh will be sabotaged. Majority of people from Telangana are not in favour of this separation,” Raju said.

Terming the decision taken by the Centre ‘wrong’, secretary of Telugu Vignaga Samithi Jaichandra Reddy said: “This is a clear case of injustice done to Telugu people.”

“The decision should have been made taking everyone into confidence. There is the issue of water, land and power. How will these be tackled? These issues are likely to lead to fights every  day,” Chinnaswamy Raju, owner of Atria Hotel, said.

“This decision has caused my heart to bleed. People from Telangana are like brothers to us. The Centre should also have listened to the problems of Seemandhra MPs. The water scarcity is a big issue in Chittoor from where I come,” Ramesh Naidu, a Class-I Contractor attached to Public Works Department, Karnataka, said while terming passing of Telangana Bill ‘murder of democracy’.

Calling it a black day for Andhra Pradesh, Ganga Raju, manager of Tribhuvan Hotel said: “The Congress has resorted to divide and rule policy while BJP was busy in double standard talks. The Congress MPs from Andhra Pradesh should have resigned a long time back to prevent this ‘death blow’.”
