Hyderabad, Dec 12 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (CPI) in Andhra Pradesh today maintained it would not put hurdles in the creation of separate Telangana, even as TDP Politburo Member Y Ramakrishnudu made it clear it was for the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government (UPA) to decide on the issue.
The CPI had understood the ''strong sentiment'' in favour of the separate state and wanted the UPA Government to find a ''political solution'' to the issue without any delay.
''My party will not stand in the way,'' CPI State Secretary K Narayana told reporters here.
Meanwhile, the Senior TDP leader told reporters the ''the ball is in the Congress' court . It is for the party to give and those asking for it to take.'' The TDP was closely watching the political situation and would review its stand at an appropriate time in keeping with the resolution adopted by the party on the issue at its ''Mahanadu'' (political conclave) earlier, Mr Ramakrishnudu further said.
Asked whether the TRS would have a place in the third front being proposed by the party, the CPI leader, evading a direct reply, recalled the TRS had tied up with the Congress which had seat sharing arrangement with the Left.
The party would take an appropriate decision after analysing the political situation in 2009.
