Congress General Secretary, AP In Charge, Digvijay Singh addressing the media in Hyderabad has said that Congress is prepared to contest all assembly and Lok Sabha seats with or without any understanding with TRS. Here is what he said about several other things….
Although KCR has promised, once Telangana is created, the purpose of the party would be over and he would merge the party, he changed his decision, it is up to him. We are prepared to fight all assembly and Lok Sabha seats with or without an understanding with TRS. Committee of Keshava Rao can have discussions with AK Antony committee, if concrete proposals from TRS come, we shall examine.
The Telangana creation was a difficult decision. It was taken after all the other parties have supported the demand. Once the decision was taken, Soniaji has stood firm on her word.
The backward districts of both regions are given special status, Polavaram is given National status, the issue of rehabilitation of submerged areas is the Center’s responsibility, the best options will be given in this regard.
Some organizations have already started looking for and designing Seemandhra Capital, I am happy about it. IIT AIIMS, IITM, NIT etc, to be established there are opportunities for growth. Immense possibilities to be thrown up in a decade should be used by the public.
Kiran went back on his word not to form a party, it is sad he went out of Congress.
Jairam Ramesh has his own style in expressing himself, they are his own views.”
