Hyderabad: TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu
today said his party leaders from Telangana and Andhra-
Rayalaseema have presented their views before the Srikrishna
Committee in tune with the sentiments of the people there.

"We have made our stand very clear on the state
bifurcation issue. Our leaders from the two regions only
represented the people`s sentiments to the five-member
committee," Naidu told reporters here today.

He asserted that both Telangana and Andhra-Rayalaseema
regions were his "two eyes".

"For the last 29 years, people of the two regions
respected the TDP immensely. In fact, our party belongs to all
the Telugu people," he said.

To a question, Naidu said, "Let the Congress high command
first spell out its stand on the statehood issue. I shall
speak after that."

The TDP chief demanded that both the state and Central
governments fight the case effectively against Karnataka
Tourism Minister Gali Janardhana Reddy`s Obulapuram Mining
Company which got a temporary reprieve from the Supreme Court
in the illegal iron ore mining case.
