Hyderabad: Alleging that the real villain to the Telangana cause was the TDP Chief, Mr N Chandrababu Naidu, the AICC secretary and MLC, Mr Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy, has said it was not proper to the TDP senior leader, Mr Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, blaming the AICC Chief, Ms Sonia Gandhi, for the prevailing situation in Andhra Pradesh.
Speaking to the media at CLP office here on Friday, Mr Ponguleti demanded that Mr Yanamala make Mr Chandrababu Naidu to announce a clear stand on Telangana issue instead of criticizing Ms Sonia Gandhi. Recalling that the TDP senior leader, Mr Yerrannaidu, had given a letter to the Pranab Committee in favor of Telangana, he said Mr Chandrababu Naidu and his party leaders were talking differently on Telangana issue now.
Demanding that the Telangana TDP leaders mount pressure on their party president to make his stand clear on Telangana issue, Mr Ponguleti said that Mr Yanamala too should force Mr Chandrababu Naidu to give a straight answer on it.
Describing the demands of Greater Rayalaseema and Manya Seema States as a plot against the Telangana movement, he said it was a conspiracy hatched to obstruct the Centre’s efforts to create separate Telangana. He said that every one had the right to demand for something but these demands were rising only when Telangana movement was in peak stage. He said the Congress high command was trying to convince the Seemandhra leaders on Telangana issue and Mr Chandrababu Naidu should convince his Seemandhra leaders on the same lines.
