Visalandhra Mahasabha has said it is ready for debate on facts related to the demand for separate Telangana.

Mahasabha president N. Chakravarthi and general secretary Parakala Prabhakar said in a statement on Sunday that they saw a news item published in a Telugu daily wherein TRS leader T. Harish Rao had said at Siddipet that he was ready for a debate on Telangana with Mr. Parakala Prabhakar. In that case, Basheerbagh Press Club would be the most appropriate place for such a debate where the copies of a book published by Visalandhra Mahasabha against the demand for Telangana were burnt by those supporting the statehood demand, they added.
