Chandrasekhar Rao writes to Manmohan on Telangana

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao criticised TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu for his relentless effort to stall the bifurcation process on some pretext or the other.

“Mr. Naidu continues to oppose Telangana and has been spewing venom against the process at every given opportunity,” he said. He exhorted the Telangana TDP leaders to leave the party with immediate effect as working under Mr. Naidu’s leadership was tantamount to “self-betrayal”.

Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao was addressing a press conference after releasing copies of a letter he addressed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressing his party’s serious reservations against certain provisions in the draft AP Reorganisation Bill 2013.

He said there was no scope for survival of Seemandhra parties in Telangana region. The support base of the YSR Congress has completely eroded while Lok Satta Party president Jayaprakash Narayan showed his true colours by opposing the Statehood issue.
