Hyderabad: The four- member Antony panel constituted by AICC to hear the grievances of Congress leaders from Seemandhra region will begin its work from next week. The PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana who went to Delhi on Saturday submitted a list of names of those who would depose before the Antony panel.

The Seemandhra ministers including S Sailajanath, Kondru Murali, P Balaraju and others will be leaving for Delhi on Tuesday. They also propose to hold a dharna near Jantar Mantar to draw the attention of the party high command and impress upon them not to bifurcate the State.

The Antony panel which consists of AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh, Ahmed Patel and Veerappa Moily is expected to visit Hyderabad on Saturday to hear the arguments of various organisations including the employees, student bodies, APNGOs etc. Meanwhile, more ministers from the Seemandhra region came out in support of the statement made by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at a press conference recently wherein he said that unless the issues concerning water, power and the status of Hyderabad were addressed, the process of bifurcation cannot move forward.

This had received both bouquets and brickbats from various parties and Congress leaders. At a press conference on Saturday, ministers Kondru Murali and P Balaraju took strong objection to the remarks made by TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao who said that Kiran can set up a curry point in the city without any problem. They said KCR should behave like a statesman. He can open a tea stall in Vijayawada or Visakhapatnam. It was democratic country and anyone can do business anywhere, he said.
