AICC after due deliberations on the State division of AP, is going to present the issue in the meetings with UPA and Congress Working Committees at 4.00 and 5.30 pm today to take a final decision, on which the future of the State of Andhra Pradesh depends.
Now the point has gone beyond the question of whether the State should be divided or not. Congress party has already come to a decision to divide it from the reports received so far. The sudden fast track taken by the Congress party has taken the party leaders belong to Seemandhra by surprise who were under the assurance that carving of Telangana with Hyderabad will not materialize.
The arguments put forth by the Seemandhra leaders became futile attempts for the determined Congress Party High Command.
Now the leaders are facing the same problem as faced by the Telangana leaders previously. Telangana leaders could not face people of their constituencies because of the indecision of Congress party. Now the Andhra leaders are facing problem with their supporters in their region because of the decision of the Congress party to divide the State.
The Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy who has proved his loyalty to the party and high respect to the High Command at all times also opposed strongly for the bifurcation of the State in addition to the representations given by the Union Ministers and MPs belong to the party.
Seemandhra leaders used all their dices to change the mind of the party high command. They suggested that the party will lose in the State if a decision is taken in favor of the formation of the State of Telangana with 10 districts carving out from Andhra Pradesh. As a last resort Kiran Kumar Reddy reportedly urged the Center not to announce its decision until the Panchayat and Urban body elections are over.
In spite of all this The AICC is going very fast in taking the decision approved by CWC which is driving the Seemandhra leaders mad. They camped at Delhi, held meetings, took decisions and met all the leaders at Delhi but of no apparent use.
As Telangana leaders threatened with resignations, the Seemandhra leaders too used the same threats but the high command seems to have no impact of it. The way Telangana leaders said at that time that it was becoming difficult for them to move in their constituencies, Seemandhra leaders too expressed the same thing for which what they got was protections!
