Amid ongoing political turmoil in Andhra Pradesh over the Telangana issue, former Union minister and BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya on Sunday urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to immediately move a Bill in Parliament for formation of the separate state.
In a letter to Singh, Dattatreya said "Sakala Janula Samme (general strike) in support of Telangana state has entered the 34th day which was supported by all sections of the people including state government employees and political parties".
Condemning arrest of leaders of political parties on the first day of 'rail roko' protests, the BJP leader said, "Instead of understanding the seriousness of the situation and taking an early decision, the government has been provoking people in the direction of violence through inaction, provocation and partisan actions".
