MP Vivek speaks after T Bill approval


TRS leader, Peddapalli MP Sri Vivek spoke with NDTV India just after the approval of the T Bill this afternoon. This is a summary of what he spoke…

“First SRC itself advised against this merger. Even Jawahar Lal Nehru said that this innocent Telangana may not coexist with the smart Andhra, and hence may choose to live separately later on, actually even this merger never really happened, Telangana has been separate culturally, socially and emotionally….

The passing of the bill happened after Congress and BJP came together which resulted in a 350 plus support to the bill, the passing of the bill did not happen behind the doors, it happened with a legitimate majority vote, amendments were discussed, voted and were finally passed.

We wish all the best to our Seemandhra brethren, there is no ill will in our hearts for them , we even tried to fight for their welfare too, they demanded a High Court in Guntur, even we supported the demand, but it was not sanctioned unfortunately…

We are happy that the Bill is passed finally due to the active role played by Smt. Sonia Gandhi… She took BJP into confidence on this, because of it the bill finally got a strong support of around 370 votes! Full credit goes to Soniaji for this….our leader Sri KCR too worked relentlessly for 12 years for this difficult cause..

On the issue of merger with Congress, We clearly remember that we took this decision after the July 31st CWC decision in favor of Telangana, after the Bill is approved in both the houses, the TRS politburo will meet and discuss the issue and will take a decision on this, this if a mere formality, just a matter of a day or two….”
