AICC president Sonia Gandhi told decision taken by Congress high command to divide the state will be final and irreversible. She appealed to the Seemandhra leaders to cooperate with the division of the state.

Sonia promised to the Seemandhra leaders that justice will be done to the people of all the regions and asked them not to worry. She opined high-power committee constituted by party will address the issues concerning the Seemandhra region, like sharing of river waters, revenue, electricity, protection for Andhra and Rayalseema people in Telangana and other issues.

A delegation took up the proposal of Greater Rayalseema that include four districts of Rayalssema, Nellore and Prakasam. In case if this isn’t possible, they asked her to at least merge Anantapur and Kurnool districts with Telangana state. Sonia then asked them to refer these proposals to the high-power committee.

All the Seemandhra Union Ministers have been looking forward to meet the high-power committee headed by Defense minister AK Antony as soon as it starts functioning. They are hopeful that the process of division of state will be put on hold until the committee submits its report.
