TDP,Praja Rajyam in fix over Telangana; may alter stand

TDP and Praja Rajyam Party are in a fix over their stand on Telangana and the leaderships have dropped enough hints about a 're-think' on the issue.

TDP and Praja Rajyam Party are in a fix over their stand on Telangana and the leaderships have dropped enough hints about a “re-think” in the wake of mounting pressure from within the ranks for a unified Andhra Pradesh.

Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu has already indicated that the party would go by the mood of the people on the bifurcation issue. “The issue is now in the people’s court and we have to respect the people’s verdict,” he had observed.

However,party MLAs and senior leaders from Telangana have been demanding that a separate TDP unit for the region be set up in the wake of political developments in which all parties are divided along regional lines.

The TDP has a strong base in Telangana with 39 MLAs. Same is not the case with the PRP,which has only two lawmakers from the region.
