Telangana bill: KCR seeks more time
HYDERABAD, November 8, 2010
Extends deadline to ‘whip up tension’ if Srikrishna panel report goes negative
Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday sought more time to implement his agenda of whipping up ‘social tension’ if the Srikrishna Committee opposed the creation of Telangana when he said the party will watch out for developments till the budget session of Parliament.
Mr. Rao, who in the past said that he would wait for a week or ten days after December 31 when the committee was supposed to submit the report and later extended the deadline by 15-20 days, on Sunday further stretched it to the budget session beginning February. There will definitely be an agitation if the government did not introduce the bill during the budget session, granting statehood to Telangana, he told a meeting at the party office before leaving for New Delhi.
The TRS chief played down apprehensions of turmoil after December 31 saying supporters of Telangana were not waiting for that day with deadly weapons. He also scotched rumours that the schedule of students would be disturbed.
He asked TV channels and the leaders who floated rumours to play a positive role by projecting the movement for Telangana in the right perspective. They needlessly presented a false picture about Hyderabad, Warangal and some other centres of Telangana “collapsing” if the agitation took off. “Why can’t they speak in the same manner about Vijayawada”, he asked.
Quoting former Chief Minister K. Vijayabhaskara Reddy as saying that Hyderabad would burn if Telangana was made a separate State, Mr. Rao said it was this kind of propaganda which anguished people. The talk was deliberately let loose to create confusion in the minds of people.
