New Delhi: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu walked out of the National Integration Council (NIC) meet being held here, Monday, after he was not allowed t raise the Telangana issue during the discussions.
Naidu said that he walked out after the Home Minister and Finance Minister rejected his demand that Andhra Pradesh bifurcation issue be discussed during the high-level meet that is being attended by the Prime Minister, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, senior UPA ministers, chief ministers of many states and other important political leaders, bureaucrats and media personalities.
“For last four years state (AP) is in uncertainty, Telangana has been on the boil, Congress wants to take political gain out of this,” Naidu said.

“If I can`t raise issue of national concern (Telangana), what is NIC`s use?” he added.
