Leaders still hopeful of rolling back of decision
Seemandhra Congress MLAs are hopeful that the Congress central leadership would roll back the decision taken on bifurcation of the State. Senior Congress leader Gade Venkata Reddy said that the decision of bifurcation of the State is the Congress and not the UPA government and still hopeful that the party leadership will take back its decision.
Minister S Sailajanath speaking to media on Thursday said that they would continue mounting pressure on the party leadership as the decision was not in the interests of the two regions. They wanted the TDP and YSRCP to come out openly in support of the united State rather than adopting double standards on the issue. They said that the TDP president Chandrababu Naidu directly supported the bifurcation, the YSRCP's stand is ambiguous. The slogan of equal justice reflect that the party is not totally against bifurcation said Sailajanath. They demanded that TDP and YSRCP take back the letters of support they had given to the Congress leadership. Sailajanath said that the party's Seemandhra leaders would launch a deeksha in support of united Andhra Pradesh tentatively from September 2 or 3 on the Legislative Assembly premises or at the Telugu Talli statue.
