Hyderabad: Congress leaders from Telangana
region on Monday said they will oppose any move by the Centre to
appoint a States` Reorganisation Commission (SRC) if the
separate Telangana demand is included in its purview.

"We want a bill introduced in Parliament for formation of
separate Telangana without any delay. If there is any move to
appoint a SRC, that includes Telangana, we will oppose it and
try to get it reversed," Congress MP from Karimnagar, Ponnam
Prabhakar told reporters here.

He was responding to reports in a section of the media
that said the Centre is considering constituting a SRC. The
media reports cited a resolution being passed by Congress at a
party meet in Varanasi recently.

"The resolution passed by the party was confined to Uttar
Pradesh," Prabhakar stressed.

Congress MLCs K R Amos and K Yadava Reddy also vowed to
oppose any move to appoint SRC for Telangana.

The ruling party leaders from Telangana have already said
they will take part in the agitation for statehood if the
Centre failed to take concrete action towards the formation of
the separate state.
