Demand for a separate Telangana state opposed
Guntur: The Joint Auction Committee For a United Andhra Pradesh has taken a stand opposing the demand for carving out a separate Telangana state.
The committee which met at the Acharya Nagarjuna University campus with S Samuel as chairperson, mounted a scathing attack on Telangana Rashtra Samithi supremo N Chandrasekhara Rao and Kodanda Ram of Telangana Joint Action Committee, describing them as villains of the piece.
Speaking on the occasion, Mohammed Hidyat expressed fears that Andhra which falls under the lower riparian area of the Godavari and Krishna rivers may become a desert if the state is divided. "Irrigation projects will be hit," he claimed.
However, Samuel evaded a question about how unity could be forced on unwilling Telangana people, who seem have contempt for Andhrites and view then as exploiters.
