He said it was the demand of the JAC that Telangana state should be constituted with ten districts and Hyderabad. Kodandaram demanded that the Telangana Bill should be introduced in the present Parliament sessions and that the ensuing cabinet meeting should take a decision on the matter.
Kodandaram said it was improper on the part of leaders of the Congress and TDP to remain silent at such a key stage. He alleged that while some were trying to obstruct the Telangana that was materializing, others were trying to provoke people.
He called upon the people to spurn the ‘manifestations’ of the Seemandhra leaders and protect Telangana. He also demanded that the DGP Dinesh Reddy be removed from the post and replaced with an officer of the cadre of some other state. He charged Dinesh Reddy with acting in favour of one region.
