Will remain in Congress, though am against AP division: Kavuri
Hyderabad: Union Minister for Textiles Kavuri Sambasiva Rao on Saturday said he would continue to remain in the Congress even if it went ahead with the division of Andhra Pradesh.
"I have been with the Congress for the past 47 years. Now, I don`t have the capacity to walk out of it, though I am against the bifurcation of the state," Kavuri said, when asked about his political moves in the event of the state`s division.
Kavuri also said he was yet undecided on whether or not to contest the next election.
"My political future is not important. I am not worried about it," he said in response to a question.
Asked about the Congress` prospects in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema given the public anger over the division issue, Kavuri said nothing could be predicted at this stage.
"Elections are still four months away. Who knows how many changes there could be?" he shot back.
Kavuri, a five-time MP, had quit the Congress after he was denied a berth in the Union Cabinet early last year but remained in the party after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh placated him.
Subsequently, he was inducted into the Union Cabinet.
