‘Solution must be acceptable to the country’
Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday made light of the ultimatum set by Telangana Congress MPs to the high command on separate Statehood issue saying that nobody could dare set a deadline to the party and it would not solve the problem.
During his interaction with the media in New Delhi, he said the Telangana issue was a sensitive and delicate one. It was there for a long time and due to pressure from the people, the Centre was trying to find an amicable solution for the people of Andhra Pradesh.
He said that it should be an acceptable solution to the whole country as well. Since there have been various demands from other parts of the country and that problems might arise, he said the Centre was dealing with the Telangana issue cautiously and holding talks in phases.
Counselling patience, he appealed to everyone to await Centre’s decision as it was seriously concentrating on settling the issue.
Asked about the likelihood of Cabinet expansion, Mr. Reddy took a dig at the media saying that he would take their permission along with that of the high command while expanding the Cabinet.
