Come clear on Telangana, Congress told

HYDERABAD, AUG. 21. The BJP MLA, G. Kishen Reddy, has accused the Congress and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) of deceiving people on Statehood for Telangana and wanted the former to state clearly whether it favoured bifurcating the State or not.

Referring to the statement of the Chief Minister, Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, that the backing of 100-crore people was needed for forming Telangana, he said: "Congress is a party which deceives and backstabs."

He criticised Congress MLAs from Telangana for remaining silent and also found fault with the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, for not making any statement so far.
