Congress leadership was firm on not going back on the decision of CWC to carve out Telangana from the State and on the other hand the protests in Seemandhra to keep the State united is getting intensified making the Congress leaders sandwiched between the people they represent and the party they work for. Pressure has been mounting in the districts of Seemandhra to resign and join the agitation. Protesters say that the leaders are elected by them not just to sit pretty at Delhi unmindful of the wishes of the people they represent.
The Seemandhra leaders revealed their problems and problems that are sure to arise on bifurcation like water and electricity sharing and protection for the Andhra employees and other things related to it and strongly advocated against going ahead with the process of bifurcation.
