TDP Telangana Forum convenor and MLA Errabelli Dayakar Rao has demanded that the Congress led UPA at the Centre convene all-party meeting to sort out the separate Telangana issue immediately.

Talking to newsmen here on Saturday, he said both the Congress and TRS parties were playing with the sentiments of the people of the region. Terming Congress party are enemy number one of the Telangana people, the TDP leader said each of the Congress leaders – Azad, Vayalar Ravi, Chidambaram and Sushil Kumar Shinde issue statements on Telangana issue making mockery of the issue.

It was the Congress party which promised separate Telangana State and subsequently went back. Time and again the party keeps promising and never delivers it. “It has become a joke for the Congress leaders. Each of them talk differently and confuse the people who are dead serious about their self-respect and separate statehood,” Mr. Dayakar Rao said.

The TRS party which came into existence with the sole purpose of securing separate statehood has been colluding with the ruling Congress that had deceived the people umpteen times. In the name of Telangana, KCR and his family made fortunes and still trying to hoodwink the people.

“Why should the Congress party hold talks with TRS party? They should hold talks with those opposing separate Telangana - the leaders of all parties from Andhra and Rayalaseema. They should be convinced first and then decide on the issue,” the TDP leader said.

Both the Congress and TDP were trying to target the other political parties in Andhra Pradesh, particularly the TDP. The TDP enjoys great public patronage and no force can damage it.

“The TDP will launch Telangana movement on its own if needed. We will mobilise people in all districts and fight for the cause,” he said.
