'Telangana should not happen'

'Telangana should not happen'

MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi on Sunday made sensational comments on the Telangana statehood issue.

"The T-leaders were singing the Telangana song and the Andhra leaders were singing their song. Neither Chandrababu Naidu nor Jagan won't make their stand clear on Telangana. But, I will talk about it. Telangana should not happen. We are in Andhra Pradesh and it should remain the same. In case of bifurcation, Rayalseema should be with Telangana (Rayala-Telangana)," said Akbaruddin Owaisi.

Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) party has openly refused to support the bifurcation of the state. The MIM leaders expressed their views before the Sri Krishna Committee by saying they weren't in favour of the formation of Telangana. MIM fears BJP taking lead in Telangana region after the bifurcation, so it is opposing the statehood. Though MIM leaders are openly opposing Telangana, TRS Chief KCR and the other pro-Telangana leaders haven't even dared to settle scores with them fearing the consequences.
