Taking a U turn on his support to Telnagana State, TDP politburo member and Rajya Sabha member Nandamuri Hari Krishna on Sunday quit his post protesting the Congress-led UPA’s decision to bifurcate the State.Speaking to media after paying tributes to his father and former chief minister NT Rama Rao at NTR ghat here, the TDP leader said he sent his resignation letter to Rajya Sabha chairman Hamid Ansari and also to the party president N Chandrababu Naidu explaining the reasons for his decision to quit the MP post.
Though he was not against Telangana, he said he was protesting against the way the State was being bifurcated without consulting the people from all regions. 'We (TDP) are not against bifurcation, but we are against the way the bifurcation was done', he added. Demanding the Centre to divide the State only after addressing the demands put by Seemandhra people with regard to the capital city and the status of Hyderabad, he said the other important issues - water sharing, power and distribution of natural resources between the two states should be resolved before carving out the State.
“The Centre's decision has shocked all Telugu people. Justice should be done to all Telugu people equally and properly,’ he said. Hari Krishna blamed Congress party for taking decisions blindly sitting in Delhi and demanded to take back it. It may be mentioned here, two days ago, Hari Krishna in an open letter said that he was accepting the State bifurcation with a heavy heart.
