New Delhi, Jul 27: N Chandrababu Naidu threatened the centre, to launch a mass agitation programme, if Manmohan Singh fails to resolve the Babli issue by Aug 10.

“I am telling the PM that he should solve the issue. The Central government and Congress are responsible. We are giving him 15 days to solve the issue, otherwise TDP along with like-minded parties will launch a mass agitation. The date is Aug 10," he said.
Manmohan Singh on Monday, Jul 26, assured the delegation that he would intervene and try to sort out the problems between the two States on Babli.
