Unfazed by protests,the Union government on Tuesday ruled out any rethink on the decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.
“There can not be a rethink on the issue. A decision has already been taken by the Cabinet,” said Cabinet Secretary Ajit Kumar Seth.
Seth’s remarks came on a day when government reorganised the Group of Ministers (GoM) panel for working out modalities of creation of the new Telangana state for which a decision was taken on October 3.
Last week,the Cabinet had decided to go ahead with the decision to create a seperate Telangana state. After the decision,the protestors intensified their agitation,thus crippling normal life in Seemandhra region.
YSR Congress Party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy and Telegu Desam Party supremo N Chandrababu Naidu have gone on fast,in protest against the decision.
Commenting on the on-going agitation in Seemandhra region,Seth said “normalacy shall be restored in the region.”
