State will remain united:YSRCP

October 19,2013: Exuding confidence that its united state stand will prevail, YSR
Congress has appealed to all the votaries of an integrated state to raise their
voice in unison at the October 26th Samaikhya Shankaravam which
should have a telling effect on the thought process of the Delhi.

states have always been the core cause for development and the public meeting
to be addressed by our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is aimed at
bringing together all forces seeking a united stand and we believe that the
State can remain united and prosper despite some of the Union Ministers, MPs
and State leaders chickening out,” party senior leader Konathala Ramakrishna
told reporters here on Saturday.

are confident that the state will not be separated despite hurdles being
created by vested interests and the October 26th meeting will be the
plank to rip open all apprehensions on the inevitability of the division of
State and as our President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has told earlier, all
like-minded people, parties and organizations should come together at this hour
of reckoning.

have seen in the past that development has superseded the separatist slogan and
during YSR term, Telangana has prospered in agriculture, industry, education,
medicare, housing and all fields. The mandate given to YSR-led Congress in 2009
is a sterling example of the theory that development negates separatism,” he

of the union ministers have met the Group of Ministers (GoM) and had given
their proposals for package to Semmandhra which is like captain deserting the
ship during crisis. “We have called to boycott the GoM. Only if the Cabinet
note is withdrawn then there is a point in discussing with the GoM, otherwise
it is playing into the hands of Congress,” he said.

Union Ministers, Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu
are working with a mission to expedite the division process taken up by the
Centre, but our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has taken a stand to fight for a
united state and our stand will triumph finally, he said.

1969 and 1972 agitations have ushered in more development in the State which
ranks third after
Maharashtra and Uttar
Pradesh on the national scale in terms of GDP.

in the history was a state bifurcated against the wish of the people. Senior
BJP leader LK Advani had told the Parliament, way back in 2000, that an
assembly resolution is needed to bifurcate any state while it was told to former
MP A Narendra that the formation of Telangana is not possible on another

then Union Home Minister P Chidrambaram had announced on December 9 that a
resolution will be moved in the Assembly for carving out a separate state from
Andhra Pradesh.  There was an assembly resolution when three states were
formed by NDA and when it comes to Andhra Pradesh the Centre is trying to move
away from the established conviction for political gains.

asked how YSRCP can be confident of keeping the State united when the division
process is moving fast, he said, “in the first SRC (State Reorganisation
Committee) it was mentioned that Vidarbha should be made a separate state but
the proposal did not see light of the day. In the case of our State too there
are issues which cannot be ignored,” he said.

unilateral and authoritarian attitude of the Centre and Congress strengthens
our resolve more firmly to fight for a united State,” he said and appealed to
all integrationists to make the October 26th Samaikhya Shankaravam a
grand success.
