Kiran should never have permitted the Telangana March, he says

Elected representatives opposed to the division of the State will sit together and come up with an action plan, Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal has said.

Addressing a press conference late in the evening in Vijayawada on Sunday, he said the Telangana March was allowed only because the voice of those against the division of the State was weak. This would not happen in the future because those opposed to the division would sit together and chalk out with an action plan.

Mr Rajagopal said that Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy should never have permitted the Telangana March. He had to do it under unavoidable circumstances. This was the last time such a chance would be given to those demanding a separate state. The Ministers and MLAs who prevailed on the Chief Minister to grant permission should now answer. Mr Rajagopal wondered where the Minister and MLAs were when there were attacks on business establishments and on media. Fortunately there were no major incidents, or the Chief Minister would have lost his chair, Mr Rajagopal said.
