PM Narendra Modi hand, says TRS on YSRC move to back Andhra Pradesh-Telangana union | India News


HYDERABAD: YSR Congress will oppose the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh during the hearing in the Supreme Court, Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, Andhra Pradesh government adviser, said on Thursday, sparking angry protests from the TRS leadership.
The apex court is hearing cases on AP capital city Amaravati and a petition against the division of Andhra Pradesh in 2014, filed by former MP, Vundavalli Arun Kumar, who challenged the AP State Reorganization Act. Under the act, AP was bifurcated in June 2014, carving out a separate state, Telangana.
Reacting sharply to Ramakrishna Reddy’s remarks made in Vijayawada on Thursday, TRS veteran and MLC, Palla Rajeshwara Reddy, accused Ramakrishna ofspewing venom against Telangana at the “behest” of the BJP central leadership.
“Telangana has been progressing in the past nine years since bifurcation. We strongly suspect PM Modi’s hand behind Ramakrishna Reddy’s comments. Whenever Modi gets a chance, he comments on the formation of Telangana state. The PM even said the mother was killed to save the child while referring to the division ofAP to form the new state,” Rajeshwara Reddy alleged.
He also alleged that Modi has been interacting with YSRC members frequently to “hatch a conspiracy against Telangana”. Earlier in the day, Ramakrishna Reddy, who is also the general secretary of YSRC, reiterated that his party opposed the bifurcation of AP from the beginning, while other parties had welcomed it. He asserted that YSRC would even welcome a situation where the bifurcation is withdrawn and the two Telegu states are reunited.
Ramakrishna also said the SC is hearing the cases on Amaravati and the petitions against the bifurcation and added that YSRC was clear on the two issues and would present its arguments through its advocate. He said there was no going back on the stand for united AP.
