Congress meet on Telangana heightens anxiety

With two days to go for the Congress core committee’s crucial meeting on Telangana, anxiety is growing in all three regions of Andhra Pradesh.

The chief minister, deputy chief minister and state Congress chief intensified consultations with party leaders from all regions to finalise their reports to the core committee.

At the same time, a group fighting to keep the state united has called for a shutdown on Friday in Seemandhra (Rayalaseema and Andhra regions).

Samaikya Andhra or United Andhra students joint action committee (JAC) has called for the shutdown on the day when the core committee is likely to meet in Delhi to decide on the long-pending demand for a Telangana state.

Chief minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, his deputy Damodar Rajanarasimha and state Congress chief Botsa Satyanarayana will submit their reports to the Congress leadership. The chief minister and state Congress chief come from Rayalaseema and Andhra regions respectively, and both are believed to be against the state’s division. Telangana comprises 10 districts including Hyderabad.
