The Telugu Association of North America is creating two special earmarked funds for the development of the new capital of Andhra Pradesh and for development of Telangana after the bifurcation of Andhra.
TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on the issue of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, seeking her "good offices" to settle the issue amicably while accusing Congress of playing "dirty politics" on this matter.
In the joint memorandum to Gandhi, the ministers said that the
MPs from Telangana had already presented their case before the
top leadership and made no secret of their "uncompromising
stand" on a separate state.
On the eve of an all-party meeting
on Telangana, TRS chief K Chandrashekhar Rao today said the
Centre should follow its announcement on creation of a
separate state with a resolution in Parliament but set no
deadline for it.
In June, when then AP cm Rajasekhara Reddy asked TRS prez KC Rao where he would hide after the humiliating electoral defeat, few would have thought that the goal of a separate state would be achieved in just six months.
With the process of formation
of a Telangana state set in motion, state Congress leaders
have said the aspirations of the people of Hyderabad should be
taken into consideration before deciding the city`s fate.
TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao`s on Tuesday ignored doctors` appeal for giving up his indefinite fast as his health deteriorated and simmering tensions put the Congress in a bind over the separate Telangana demand.
