Bangalore: The members of Rayalseema Rashtra
Samithi on Sunday staged a dharna in front of Union Law Minister M
Veerappa Moily`s residence here protesting the Centre`s nod
for formation of a separate Telangana state.
The agitators in a memorandum addressed to Moily, copies
of which were released to the press, appealed to him to
intervene in the issue and put pressure on Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh not to go ahead with dividing Andhra Pradesh.
Samithi President Pattubala Bhaskar Reddy said the
thought of dividing Andhra Pradesh and carving a separate
Telangana was "shocking to Telugu people who are known for
their unity and integrity. This step may lead to (similar)
demands from other states also".
