Hyderabad: The Samaikya Andhra Samithi Party (SASP) has charged the Bharatiya Janata Party with fuelling religious fanaticism by encouraging protagonists of smaller States with an intention to derive political benefit.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Friday, the SASP president, Mr G Kumar Chowdary Yadav, said though the Union minister and AICC leader incharge of State party affairs, Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad, declared that the Centre would make a statement on Telangana State in two months, Andhra Pradesh remains in tact at least in the next 20 years. The so-called deliberations on Telangana are only time-consuming exercise, he added.
Pointing out that the Nalgonda Congress MP, Mr Gutha Sukhender Reddy, had stated that the people of the Telangana region would get jobs after the people of the Seemandhra region left, Mr Yadav ridiculed the former for describing Seemandhra people as brethren now.
Referring to the proposed strike by the Telangana employees over Telangana issue, the SASP leader appealed to the government to get tough with the employees and sack them summarily if they went on strike. He also informed that they would start “Samaikyandhra and Vishalandhra” workshop in Hyderabad shortly.
