CPI national general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy warned that further delaying the Telangana statehood issue will only worsen the situation in the state. He said that the people of Telangana are not fighting for a separate country but are only asking a state. Suravaram was speaking at a public meeting organized to mark the conclusion of the week long Telangana Praja Poru Yatra at Warangal.
Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy also said that his party is ready to take the statehood fight to Delhi if needed. He urged the UPA government to initiate steps to Telangana statehood without further delay.
