Telangana: Andhra CM criticises Jagan & Chandrababu

Hyderabad, Oct 7: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy on Monday refused to commit to quit over the Telangana protest, saying that he was not bothered about holding on to power. Saying that his seat is a small sacrifice, Reddy cautioned the Centre on going ahead with the formation of the Telangana.

Reddy said no decision should be taken on the issue, at least not before the next Lok Sabha polls. He also said that Congress leaders from the Seemandhra region will try to convince the party's high command about the drawbacks of the decision. He said that high command has to be told that one can not create a bigger problem while trying to resolve one problem.

The Congress chief minister criticised leaders like Jaganmohan Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu who have began fasts to protest the creation of Telangana, adding that both the YSRC and TDP leaders were in favour of supporting Telangana at some point of time.

No decision should be taken before the Lok Sabha polls, said Kiran Kumar Reddy
