Hyderabad: The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen
(MIM) on Sunday urged the Centre to intervene in the present
imbroglio over Telangana issue.

"The issue is going out of hands as youngsters and police
are frustrated due to the promises given by Telangana leaders
day in and day out that Telangana would be a reality in a few
days," MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said at the party
headquarters.

Owaisi said that over the last few days, the Telangana
agitation has acquired such proportions that it might lead to
violence. "Therefore, the Centre should intervene and take
stock of the situation," he said.

"The frequent bandh calls given by separatist groups are
putting everyone to hardship, particularly the daily bread
earners, and I strongly oppose such bandhs in the interest of
common people," he said.

The MIM leader, however, clarified that his organisation
is not opposed to the demand for separate Telangana state and
demanded that its views and recommendations should be taken
into consideration before the Centre takes any decision on it.
