New Delhi: Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telegu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu was on Tuesday asked to vacate Andhra Bhawan in the national capital where he is sitting on an indefinite fast to press the Centre to rethink its decision to create Telangana.
The resident commissioner of Andhra Pradesh in Delhi issued a notice to TDP asking it to vacate the premises immediately. However, the TDP is holding fort and has asserted that it will not abandon the fast being carried out by its chief.
TDP MP CM Rajesh accused the Centre and Congress party chief of playing game for electoral gains. “It is a very clear Congress game, we are not leaving,” he said.
Speaking to a news channel, Chandrababu Naidu said, “The Congress has destroyed Telegu community for political gains...it is above party lines, everything is at standstill in Andhra Pradesh.”
Naidu conceded that his party had initially supported Telangana but blamed the Congress of mishandling the matter to suit its interests.
Careful enough to not take any stand on the issue now, Naidu said that it is very difficult to choose between two children (Seemandhra and Telangana) and reiterated his demand that all sides must be called for consultations and a soluble be found amicably.
“It is very clear that Congress party has a match-fixing, they have ditched people of Seemandhra which is not correct,” he said.
