Rajahmundry: Opposing the demand for separate Telangana, representatives of the Rangampet village here have told the Sri Krishna Committee that development in their region would come to a standstill if Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated.

The representatives, consisting of common men, local leaders, students, teachers and other officials, during the interaction yesterday, contended that division of the State will result in fight for share in water of river Godavari and loss of employment opportunities.

Karnataka and Maharashtra government have already constructed several dams and bridges on Godavari and Krishna rivers. If the State is divided it will severely affect the Andhra region, as water from Godavari river comes to Andhra through Telangana region, they added.

Students pointed out that most of the industries in the State were set up in Hyderabad. "A division of the State will mean that we will lose all the employment opportunities," they added.

"Besides huge investments has been made for the development of Hyderabad city," the representatives said.

The Central government-appointed Sri Krishna Committee was here to collect the views of people from various sections of life on the separate Telangana demand made by some political parties in the State.
