Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh Congress today
appealed to the Telangana students Joint Action Committee to
desist from obstructing the visit of Chief Minister K Rosaiah
to Nizamabad district.
"It is not proper for them to obstruct the tour of the
Chief Minister. He is going there to lay foundation stone for
development activities. Creating hurdles in his visit is
nothing but stopping the development of Telangana,"
Information Minister J Geeta Reddy told reporters.
"I am the daughter of Telangana. Dividing the state is a
different matter. We want to ensure the development of
Telangana first," Reddy said.
Congress Chief Whip M Bhatti Vikramarka from Telangana
has also objected to the comments made by the Telangana
students about the Chief Minister`s visit.
Claiming that the visit of Rosaiah to Nizamabad in
Telangana is an attempt to dilute the "sentiment" in favour of
the statehood demand, the Telangana students Joint Action
Committee has vowed to obstruct his visit.
JAC Convener M Kodandaram, however, said "we have not
discussed the issue."
