Congress to refrain from commenting on Telangana

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, Sep 17: Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee President K Keshava Rao today appealed to all Congressmen to desist from making any comments on the Telangana issue.

Talking to newsmen here, Mr Rao said the decision on Telangana issue was left to UPA Chairperson, Ms Sonia Gandhi and all party leaders should wait for her decision.

The PCC President was perturbed by two Congress MPs Madhu Yashki Goud and Sarve Satyanarayana's statements openly supporting the formation of a separate Telangana state.

While Madhu Yashki Goud, Lok Sabha member fron Nizamabad, commented that people of the Telangana region were craving for separation from the rest of Andhra Pradesh, Mr Sarve Satyanarayana, elected from Siddipet constituency, said he won only because of TRS support and the people of Telangana wanting a separate state.

He also described TRS Chief K Chandrasekhara Rao as 'the dear son of mother Telangana'.

Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal said the Congress came to power only through the Padayatras undertaken by Chief Minister Rajasekhara Reddy.

Meanwhile, brushing aside PCC Chief's appeal, Mr Satyanarayana today made yet another statement that Ms Sonia Gandhi had differed with the arguement of some Congressmen that the Telangana sentiment had faded out because of the development programmes undertaken by the Rajasekhara Reddy government.

He said it was necessary for the Congress to continue its alliance with the TRS.
