Hyderabad: Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah
Naidu today demanded the UPA government make its stand clear
in the wake of contradictory statements made by Home Minister
P Chidambaram and Justice B N SriKrishna over the Telangana
issue.

It was surprising that while Home Minister says the
solution to the problem of Telangana lies not in Delhi but in
Andhra Pradesh, justice Srikrishna categorically stated that a
final decision on the Telangana issue has to be taken by the
Parliament and the centre, he said.

Justice B N SriKrishna`s statement assumes importance
as he is chairman of the committee that would go into demands
for a separate state for Telangana and unified Andhra Pradesh.

"BJP has been maintaining right from the beginning
that it needs a political solution and the Centre should take
a final decision on the issue of separate state for Telangana
region" Naidu said.
