Rayalaseema’s elected representatives will demand creation of a Rayala Telangana state comprising the Rayalaseema and Telangana regions in case of state’s bifurcation, state senior Congress leader and former minister JC Diwakar Reddy has said.
Speaking to reporters at the Congress Legislative Party office here on Monday, he hoped that the central government would consider their demand and take an appropriate decision on state’s bifurcation issue.
He said Telangana and Seemandhra leaders need not go to Delhi on the bifurcation issue because all the leaders had submitted enough number of representations to the party high command. “The party leadership will take a final decision after considering all the demands including for Greater Rayalaseema and Rayala Telangana. The Rayalaseema region will get natural justice only in a Rayala Telangana state,” the Rayalaseema leader said.
Replying to a question he said there was no need for TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao to die for Telangana since death would not clinch the issue. Resignations or political threats too would not lead to a solution, he asserted.
Reddy said there was no political uncertainty in the state and the troubles the state was facing were only created by political parties. The chief minister had the capacity to set right the situation and he had enough powers to take any decision on any issue. “Telangana ministers are discharging their duties by clearing files from their residences,” he said.
Diwakar Reddy demanded that the government take action against TJAC chairman M Kodandaram for demanding resignations of MPs and MLAs, and recalled that in 1969 the then government took action against Samikyandhra NGO union leader Sriramulu and Telangana NGO leader KR Amos.
“The tenure of MP or MLA is not permanent but a government employee remains on permanent payroll to for 33 to 35 years. TJAC chairman is a government employee and has no right to ask elected representatives to resign. Political leaders like TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao can demand the resignations of elected representatives but not Kodandaram. The chief minister should take action against Kodandaram. I do not know why he is hesitating.” Express Buzz
