B.V. Raghavulu, Secretary of the Andhra Pradesh State Committee of the CP(M) has issued the following statement:
For the last three and half years Andhra Pradesh state has been in throes of uncertainty and confusion because of the opportunism of Congress party on the issue of forming of separate Telangana. It is a welcome development that at last the Congress party that is ruling both at centre and in the state has finally taken a clear stand on the Telangana issue. We request other parties that are speaking in double voices in both regions to at least now come out with clear statement on the issue.
Political parties should prepare to take a decision as per their respective stands in the highest forum in parliamentary democracy, Parliament, without giving any scope to rouse mutual hatred or animosities.
