"If anything happens to Telangana, nobody can stop the catastrophe that will follow," the TRS leader announced on Thursday, Dec 17.
Stating that he was ready to wait for the formation of a separate Telangana to happen in the normal course, Rao stressed that a resolution by the state Assembly is not at all required for the formation of the new state.
"There is no question of waiting or beating. When Chattisgarh and Jharkhand were formed, the same process will happen here. It is an administrative process that remains to be completed," KCR said.
"The Government of India has taken a step towards the formation of Telangana. It was expected that there will be a bit of reaction from Andhra region, prompted by some vested interests. Congress party at the national level needs some breathing time for the dust to settle down. After that, we cannot even imagine that they will go back on their promise," he added.
The leader expressed confidence in Congress president Sonia Gandhi saying, "Once she takes a decision, I know how she implements it."
He, however, dismissed the whole idea of Centre trying for a consensus on the formation of Telangana, calling it a 'senseless argument'.
"Was there consensus in 1969 Telangana agitation? Was there consensus when Telangana was merged with Andhra? Was there consensus when Gujarat and Maharashtra were separated?" he said.
