Hyderabad won’t become UT: Jaipal Reddy

‘Some forces in Seemaandhra are desperately trying to see that Hyderabad is made a Union territory. But that will never happen,’ the minister said at a thanks-giving rally today organised by the Congress in Warangal. ‘The Telangana juggernaut has started rolling. If anyone tries to come in its way, it will only do a damage to them,’ he said. Congress president Sonia Gandhi had promised the Telangana state and ‘going back on the promise is not her character’, Jaipal said, adding, that resolution of the party's Central working committee on Telangana was ‘inscription in stone’.

In an oblique rebuff to chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, who had said that the late PM Indira Gandhi was opposed to the bifurcation of AP, Jaipal said: ‘Those who make such claims should read history. Indira Gandhi created Punjab, which Jawaharlal Nehru did not want.’
