Hyderabad: Congress legislators from Rayalaseema today voiced their opposition to the division of Andhra Pradesh asserting that formation of a separate state is no solution to backwardness of various regions.

"If any region is backward, then it should be rectified. Creation of new states is not a solution. Problems will only increase with the creation of new states. Law and order is in a bad shape wherever new states are created in the country," senior Congress MLA and former Minister J C Diwakar Reddy told reporters after making a representation to the Srikrishna Committee.

Some other groups, including Temple Protection Movement and Telangana intellectuals, also met the panel members today who arrived here on a three-day visit to the city.

The five-member panel, set up in February, is in final stage of its consultations with various groups. The members undertook field visits to various districts over the last one month to interact with common people.

The committee, appointed to look into the Telangana issue, is scheduled to submit its report by December end.
