Full confidence in UPA on statehood, says TRS

Last updated on: December 12, 2009 15:10 IST

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Friday said it is confident that the UPA leadership will fulfill the announcement it made
for the formation of a separate Telangana state despite vehement opposition from other regions of Andhra Pradesh over the issue.

"We have full confidence in the UPA leadership that they will keep up the announcement they have made. We are thankful to them," TRS MLA K T Rama Rao, son of the party president K Chandrasekhar Rao, told reporters.

He said there is no need to give too much importance to the en masse resignation of legislators and widespread protest in non-Telangana regions over the Centre's move to split the state.

"We are not worried about the developments after the Centre's announcement. The UPA leadership must have thought about the repercussions before taking the decision. We leave it to them," Rama Rao said.

Asked whether the TRS would like to put a time frame to see the formation of Telangana to take place, he said the party and the people of Telangana have waited for long and would not mind waiting a bit more.

The TRS would like to leave the matter to the UPA leadership about the process of formation of the separate state, he said.
Replying to a query, he said Hyderabad should be a part of Telangana and there cannot be a second thought about it.
