Rajahmundry, Jan 3: Telangana issue will be solved amicably with the consultation of all parties in the Jan 5 meeting with the Union Home Minister, Rajahmundry MP Undavalli Arunkumar said.
Addressing a press conference on Saturday evening, Jan 2, he said, "The time has come to discuss the developed and backward areas in the state."
He asked why many state and union ministers from Telangana region have not taken any developmental activities in their region during their tenure.
"Even chief ministers of this region did not take interest to develop backward regions in the Telangana," he alleged.
When compared with backward areas of Andhra and Rayalaseema, majority funds were spent on development works in the Telangana region for sectors like education, agriculture, irrigation, he said.
He refuted the charges made by Telangana region leaders that very few funds were spent for the backward areas' development in Telananga when compared to other regions of AP.
He further said he will take active part in the Jan 5 consultations, where eight parties are scheduled to meet with Home Minister P Chidambaram in New Delhi.
