Ashok Babu confident bifurcation will fail because of Article 371(D)
November 1, 2013 - Vijaywada
APNGOA president P Ashok Babu has criticized the union government for calling an all-party meeting on the bifurcation issue. Speaking to media in Vijayawada, Ashok Babu said that the union government is confused on the bifurcation process and has called an all-party meeting with the sole intent of prolonging the process. He expressed confidence that the Andhra Pradesh cannot be bifurcated unless Article 371(D) of the Constitution is either amended or scrapped.
All organisations fighting to keep the state united will meet on November 4 to finalise their future course of action, he said. The leaders will also meet President, Prime Minister and national leaders of various political parties.
