Hyderabad: The prominent Yoga guru Yogrishi Ramdevji Maharaj here on Saturday observed that the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, and the Chief Minister, Mr N Kiran Kumar Reddy, can carve out separate Telangana State if they intend to do so.
Baba Ramdev was speaking while participating in free Yoga Shivir held in Ranga Reddy district as part of Bharat Swabhiman Yatra.
The Yogrishi has demanded that the Union government immediately take steps to demerge Andhra Pradesh and announce separate Telangana State in deference to the wishes of the people of the region. He also advised the Centre to take an early decision in this regard.
Stating that people’s desire for separate Telangana State was their unquestionable democratic right, Baba Ramdev said that he would extend support only to the clean and spotless candidates in the forthcoming general elections.
