KURNOOL: President of Rayala Telangana Vedika N. Sriramulu said politicians raised the bogey of geographical separation only to cover up their lapses in the last five decades.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Mr. Sriramulu, Secretary Raghurami Reddy and convener S.N. Gupta said political leaders from all regions were misleading people by whipping up regional passions only to shirk their responsibility. He wanted to know what the leaders did for the development of their respective regions when they were in power.
