"I think it has gone terribly out of gear. Terribly out of gear. 70 per cent of people do not want division. If people of a state don't want the division of the state, and the state assembly has rejected it, then we should not go ahead with it in Parliament," he told reporters today.

Afetr Pranab Mukherjee approved the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Bill (Telangana Bill), it is to be sent back to the Ministry of Home Affairs.
