Telangana supporters oppose 'Rayala-Telangana' proposal

Telangana supporters, including the BJP, Sunday voiced opposition to the reported proposal of forming 'Rayala-Telangana' state out of Andhra Pradesh.

The proposal envisages clubbing two out of total four districts of Rayalaseema region -- Anantapur and Kurnool -to the Telangana region. Some Congress leaders from the two districts have come up with this plan.

The two districts of Rayalaseema will have better chances for welfare and prosperity if they are attached to Telangana

as it would address some of the problems involved in division like sharing water resources, according to some senior Congress leaders.

Accessibility to Hyderabad, which will be part of Telangana, would provide better opportunities to youths from the two districts, they said.

The proposal of Rayala-Telangana came into circulation following media reports that the option is being considered by the Centre.

"We want only Telangana comprising 10 districts (of present AP) and Hyderabad. We will oppose Rayala-Telangana," M Kodandaram and other Telangana protagonists said.

BJP's state unit president G Kishan Reddy has said his party might not support Rayala-Telangana though it is fully in support of the separate Telangana demand. PTI
