January 13, 2014 - Hyderabad
Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal wrote a letter to the party high command to move a resolution against bifurcation of the State in the AICC meeting on January 17 at New Delhi.
Lagadapati Rajagopal along with six other MPs from Seemandhra region has openly revolted against the party high command's decision to bifurcate the State of Andhra Pradesh. In a letter to the AICC general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi sought permission to move the non-official resolution. He said in his letter that 'in the national interest, we oppose further division of linguistic States. It is resolved to reverse the July 30 CWC resolution of requesting the Central Government to take steps in accordance with the Constitution of India to form separate State of Telangana', he said in his letter.
The Vijayawada MP said that the Telugu people gave mandate to the Congress twice but the same party was subjecting them to suffering by forcefully trying to divide the State. He reminded that Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and YS Rajasekhara Reddy never uttered a single word about the formation of Telangana during the entire campaign in the 2009 elections in Telangana.
