Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party on Thursday alleged that Congress failed to address the Telangana issue the way it should have and also could not gauge in advance the fallout post the division of Andhra Pradesh.
"We firmly believe that justice should be done to all regions and the Centre has failed to take stock of the situation and the consequences arising out of the division," a party release quoted spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar as saying.
Maintaining that the state lacked a strong leader after late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, he alleged that the deficit is perceptible.
The state leaders could not put forth the complete picture of all regions and argue the case, while the TDP leader (N Chandrababu Naidu) has shown raw opportunism on the issue, he claimed.
"YSRCP has taken a decision in the plenary that any decision on the bifurcation issue should not affect people of any region. The issue should have been sorted out like a family matter, but the Congress has politicised it, while TDP has given its tacit support," he said.
"We are clear on our stand. We wanted the Centre to play the role of the head of a family and sort out the issue amicably. But it has failed in its duty and has not been impartial. We condemn this deed of the Congress and we are not against separation," Prabhakar said.
