Andhra bifurcation will see a rise in Naxal activities: CM


New Delhi, Nov 19: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy om Monday warned that bifurcation of the state might see a resurgence of the Naxalite forces besides rise of other problems related to education, employment and water-sharing.

Speaking to the Group of Ministers (GoM) on Telangana on why Andhra Pradesh shouldn't be divided, Reddy said the extremists could return to haunt because of small and weak governments. He also said that state capital Hyderabad could also be gripped by militancy and communal unrest. The GoM completed its consultations with parties and leaders from the parties on Monday.

The Telangana Bill will be sent to the Andhra assembly on November 27 for a resolution.

Reddy reportedly indicated that if the Congress-led UPA remained adamant on the question of bifurcation, he and his Congress colleagues from the Seemandhra region could quit the party. He said a problem required a solution and not a bigger problem.

Union ministers from both Telangana and Seemandhra regions also submitted their responses to the GoM separately. Those from Seemandhra, many of whom had submitted their resignations to the prime minister in protest to the decision to bifurcate the state, sought a Union Territory status for Hyderabad. Their counterparts from Telangana, however, said that the new state would not be complete without the inclusion of Hyderabad.
