With Telangana Bill at any stage to be introduced in Parliament, the dream of separate state formation with bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh is not distant away. However, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday alleged that Congress party had a secret tie-up with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).
“Elections to six Rajya Sabha seats have exposed Congress-TRS nexus. While TDP had the strength to win two seats, Congress could have won four seats in Rajya Sabha polls. By fielding only three candidates, Congress has left one seat for TRS candidate. This unofficial seat-sharing arrangement clearly shows that both parties are into a secret understanding with each other. Congress MLA Adala Prabhakar Reddy entered the fray as a rebel as the instance of Congress High Command. It was done to mislead the people and later, Adala withdrew from the contest. Both TRS and YSR Congress Party were acting as per the script dictated by 10th Janpath,” Naidu said.
About State’s proposed bifurcation, “Congress Government could have settled the issue in an amicable manner by speaking to all stakeholders. They created enmity and hatred among the people of both regions on Telangana issue. Congress was habitual of doing politics of hatred. They made no efforts to heal the wounds of Operation Blue Star. TDP was for equal justice for all regions in the State,” Naidu alleged.
