He said “I am saying it again. Whatever problems exist with the bifurcation can be resolved using the AP Reorganisation Act. Andhra Pradesh and Telangana were given some (benefits by the Centre. Some were given to Andhra Pradesh. They gave some clarity on distribution of electricity, employees, pensions, revenue and assets, but there are some problems.”
He said “There would be happiness if both of us sit and resolve issues. Let’s solve it ourselves. Otherwise we will involve the Centre or some elders. We can resolve in such a manner that is acceptable to both. If we can focus on welfare and development, then states will improve.”
KCR said some people attacked him for what he did not say. He said “I feel proud when I go to the (international) airport, convention centre or outer ring road (in Hyderabad). They are all assets created by me. They were all done for the people. I feel proud. When that is the case, something I did not say was attributed to me. The comment that I feel like ruling from a foreign land was attributed to me intentionally. Though I said I did not make those remarks, cheap criticism is being made against me.”
He said that earlier a congress leader had wrongly attributed to him a comment that agriculture is a wasteful exercise.
Naidu accused by TRS for not sharing power that produced in the Krishnapatnam project. He said that he will never let down any region. Nothing that that the TDP undertook several welfare and development programmes for the benefit of Telangana.
According to a report from Warangal, activists of the Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti (MRPS), an outfit fighting for categorisation of SCs, protested on the issue with black flags at Jangaon, Kazipet and Hanamkonda when Naidu was on his way from Hyderabad.
TRS said that there is no objection to Naidu’s visit to Telangana, but wanted him to reply to its charge that he has been “denying” Telangana its share of power.
