Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee president Botcha Satyanarayana has asked the Central government to identify specific areas that are acting as hindrance to the smooth implementation of the decision taken in favour of bifurcation of the State.
Mr. Botcha expressed concern that a number of issues have been raised by the agitating people of Seemandhra region causing serious concern and confusion. These issues include the status of Hyderabad, future academic and employment opportunities, sharing of waters and distribution of revenues. The people are highly agitated over these issues and are looking for appropriate solutions. “Due to this, they are demanding that the State should remain united,” he said.
In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he requested the Centre to initiate discussions with all political parties to create an atmosphere of goodwill and trust before going ahead with the process of creation of separate Telangana State.
“Understandably, the scope and objective of the meeting would be restricted to identifying specific areas that are acting as hindrance for smooth implementation of the decision already taken,” he averred. The all-party meeting could be held directly by the Prime Minister himself or by other concerned Union Minister and after the meeting, further discussion could be held with other stakeholders.
