Hyderabad: The State BJP president, Mr G. Kishen Reddy, has strongly denied statement of the Telugu Desam party chief, Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu, that the BJP strongman, Mr L K Advani, had reportedly told him that there was no need for creation of Telangana State.
Speaking at the Media Point on the Assembly premises after the House was adjourned for 15 minutes on Monday morning, Mr Kishen Reddy, spitting fire on Mr Naidu said that the TDP chief, who was stating that Telangana and Andhra were his two eyes, would lose both of them if he distorted facts. He said Mr Advani had only said that a special situation was prevailing because of the Telangana movement.
Mr Kishan Reddy alleged that Mr Naidu has taken a U-turn on Telangana even though the sub-committee appointed by his party on Telangana had responded positively and the TDP Mahanadu had also passed a resolution in favour of Telangana. Reminding Mr Naidu that his party had also an electoral alliance with the TRS, he said despite all these facts, he (Naidu) had retracted on Telangana after the Union government had announced that the process of creating Telangana had started. Demanding Mr Naidu to clearly spell out his stand on Telangana, Mr Kishan Reddy alleged that the TDP chief was misleading the people.
On the ongoing agitation on Telangana, Mr Kishen Reddy said that his party would ensure that there would be no disruption to the Class X examinations. He said that he would discuss the matter with the Telangana JAC. (NSS)
