Hyderabad: Nizamabad MP Madhu Yashki Goud has exuded confidence that Telangana state would be a reality if TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao takes the initiative to call on AICC chief Sonia Gandhi with a proposal to merge his party with the Congress.
Goud, who was speaking on the current political crisis in the state during a panel discussion on Sunday, conceded that their move to tender resignations en masse did not create the desired effect on the party high command or the UPA government. “Instead, we lost an opportunity to make ourselves heard at appropriate places. I personally feel that unnecessary pressure was built on us to resign from our posts.
The desired effect could have been achieved had we stuck to our original plan of going on an indefinite hunger strike and then tender our resignations during the monsoon session of the parliament. Now, we are back to square one I feel we must convey to the Centre the sincerity with which people of the region are yearning for a separate state,” he said. The Nizamabad MP has urged the TRS supremo to immediately call on the AICC president with a merger proposal.
He urged the TRS chief to call on the AICC president with a merger proposal. “Since TRS was born to fight for the T, the Congress high command may respond to his merger plan in the larger interest of the people of the region as well as the Congress party,” he observed. TOI
