the cabinet note could be revoked, the decision on dividing the state can be
taken back keeping in view the sentiments of crores of Seemandhra people who
are on strike for the past 65 days, “party spokesperson Vasireddy Padma told
reporters here on Wednesday.

Congress has been demanding the Government to convene the assembly ahead of the

the Centre should keep away from any such moves. If it goes forward with an
authoritarian attitude of dividing the state, it should take the responsibility
of all consequences arising out of its action,” she said.

against the division of the state to pre-empt the division process by the Centre
beginning from preparing the Cabinet note, the state leaders had not responded

situation has turned volatile with the Centre going ahead with the division and
we demand the UPA government to withdraw its decision of creating a separate
state in the interest of the people who have hit the road for over two months

issue of bifurcation as YSRCP and two other parties are opposing it.

the state and centre of dire consequences if the division course is not
stopped. When an ordinance, which could have become a Bill in due course of
time, could be reversed, a decision which is not being endorsed by the majority
of the people can easily be taken back,” she said.

separate press conference, party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy echoed the
same stand and said that the issue is sensitive in nature and it should be
handled carefully without hurting the sentiments of the people of all regions.

withdrawn after drawing flak from some quarters, the decision of Core Committee
can also be reversed. We do not give consent to the Ordinance but are
mentioning the procedures adopted.

authoritarian and unilateral behavior of the Centre will give rise to serious
consequences and it has to take responsibility,” he said.
