Hyderabad: The Suryapet MLA and Telangana Congress senior leader, Mr R Damodar Reddy, has made it clear that ‘resignations’ would be a final weapon if the Centre failed to concede the demand for separate Telangana State when they go on fast after June.
Speaking at the Assembly media point here on Saturday, Mr Reddy alleged that some Seemandhra Congress leaders were trying to create differences among the Telangana Congress leaders like the TDP Chief, Mr N Chandrababu Naidu, successfully created differences among the Telangana TDP leaders.
Calling upon the Telangana Congress leaders to remain united to achieve separate Telangana State, Mr Damodar Reddy said that the Telangana protagonists have to convince the anti-Telangana Telangana leaders and Seemandhra leaders regarding separate Telangana issue.
Making it clear that the Telangana Congress leaders have no habit of setting deadlines like the TRS Chief, Mr K Chandrasekhara Rao, he said that the ministers of Telangana, who abstained from visiting Delhi, were not against creation of separate Telangana.
Exuding confidence that Telangana State would come into being, Mr Damodar Reddy said that the Telangana Congress leaders have conveyed the sentiment and feelings of Telangana people to the Congress high command during their recent visit to Delhi. He also said that the Congress high command has realized that the ministers, MPs and MLAs from the Telangana region remained united and there were no differences among them.
Lashing out at the Vijayawada MP, Mr Lagadapati Rajagopal, for saying that the Khammam district and Hyderabad City people were against formation of Telangana State, the senior leader said it was not proper to Mr Rajagopal to talk as he wished.
