Anakapalle MLA Ganta Srinivasa Rao has welcomed the first option given by the Sri Krishna Committee against bifurcation of the State. He said that the recommendation was in tune with the aspirations of a majority of the people of the State. That was also the stand taken by the Praja Rajyam Party.

He said that during his tour of some States in the US on the invitation of NRIs, he had found that a majority were in favour of an integrated Andhra Pradesh. Mr. Srinivasa Rao also welcomed the committee's recommendation on setting up of three special boards for the all-round development of Telangana.

He hoped that all political parties would welcome the option for an integrated Andhra Pradesh.
