Telangana resolution will be contempt of court: Rao

December 19, 2009 02:06 IST

TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao on Saturday claimed that insisting on Assembly Resolution for the formation of separate Telangana will amount to contempt of court.

"The Supreme Court gave the judgment that the Assembly Resolution is not necessary for formation of the new state, so saying that a resolution has to be passed for carving out Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh is actually an evil idea, it amounts to contempt of court," he told reporters in Hyderabad.

It is only a formality to seek the opinion of the Assembly, he added. Training his guns on TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, the TRS president said the former chief minister is against the formation of Telangana.

Naidu is behind his party's campaign for a united Andhra, Rao claimed.

"The agitation by the TDP for unified Andhra Pradesh is actually directed by Chandrababu Naidu. His party MLAs in Telangana are agitating for a separate state. Naidu should spell out his stand on the issue," Rao said.

Claiming that the TDP would be rejected by the people in Telananga, Rao asked the Telugu Desam leaders to come out of the clutches of Naidu.
