YSR Congress has lashed out at the Chief Minister, N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, for what it called his attempts to “deceive” the people with his statements on bifurcation of the State. YSRC spokesman Dadi Veerabhadra Rao told the reporters here on Monday that the Centre would have changed its stand if Mr. Kiran Reddy quit from his post protesting the moves to divide the State. But he chose not to resign and dissuaded his Cabinet colleagues and MLAs from quitting.
