CPI blames Rosaiah over Telangana agitations

Hyderabad: Communist Party of India Andhra
Pradesh Committee secretary K Narayana on Monday blamed former
chief minister K Rosaiah for the current turmoil in the state
over the bifurcation issue.

Addressing a press conference, Narayana held Rosaiah
responsible for the Telangana agitation reaching a flash
point.
"Had a resolution been moved in the state Assembly on
the bifurcation issue, as suggested by the Government of India
in December 2009, things would have been in a different shape
now. The agitation for Telangana would have taken a different
form," the CPI leader said.

Rosaiah earlier claimed he had informed both the Prime
Minister as well as the AICC president that passing a
resolution on the contentious statehood issue was not possible
in the circumstances prevailing at that point.
The former chief minister had told newsmen, in
reaction to a Congress MP`s criticism, that he had informed
the Government of India and the Congress high command that
passing a resolution on Telangana would not be possible as
there was division among parties on the issue in the aftermath
of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram`s statement on December
9, 2009 on "initiating the process for creating a separate
state."

"Andhra Pradesh is on boil now because of the double
standards of Rosaiah," Narayana alleged.

Meanwhile, the CPI would organise state-wide protests
tomorrow against corruption. In Hyderabad, the CPI state
secretary would lead the 24-hour-long agitation at Indira
Park.
