The bill on Telangana will be passed in Parliament shortly and this the was result of 60 years of democratic fight by the people of the region,” she said adding that about 1,000 people had sacrificed their lives for the cause.

On the apprehensions expressed by the leaders and people of Seemandhra region about their security, Dr. Geetha Reddy said that people from different parts of the nation were staying in Hyderabad and everyone had right to stay there. She said that the people of Andhra would have a chance to construct a beautiful capital after bifurcation leading to development.
