Kiran, on Saturday, challenged his party leadership and sent a strong message to Delhi leaders that he would use all options to stall the process of state bifurcation.
Right from the beginning, Kiran has stood against the idea of state bifurcation. On the last state formation day of AP, Kiran had appealedto the people of the state to stay united.
"Congress leadership is dividing the state for its political gain"
"We will definitely defeat the T-bill in Assembly. And we will see how the Parliament passes a bill that has been defeated in the Assembly", said Kiran at a public meeting at the PWD grounds in Vijayawada, after inaugurating the Pulichintala project in Guntur district.
The Telangana decision will harm not just the state, but the nation too, said Kiran. "Congress is digging its own grave," said Kiran.
He said formation of Telanagana state would pose a threat to the internal security of the nation as Naxalism and communalism will rise.
Kiran even alleged that the Congress leadership is dividing the state for its political gain with the support of TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao and YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
"Do you divide the state at the behest of KCR or Jagan, or Chadrababu Naidu?," he asked his party leadership.
He appealed to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to mix up politics and welfare of people.
Before concluding his speech, Kiran Reddy said, "Samaikyandhra is not our slogan. It is our policy."
