The district unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that the Telangana State would never become a reality through the efforts of regional parties like the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) or the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and only a national party like the BJP can carve out Telangana as a new State.

Addressing a press conference here, BJP district president Ayyanagari Bhumanna and general secretary Durgam Rajeshwar, among others, accused TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao of being anti Telangana. “He joins hands with all anti-Telangana parties and refuses to ally with BJP during elections, which proves his actual bent of mind”, they said to strengthen their charge.

Mr. Bhumanna said people in the region would back BJP and not TRS in the coming elections. “Wherever we go, people seem to have realised the importance of BJP in the context of separate Telangana and vow to support us in next elections”, he claimed.
