N Kiran Kumar Reddy set to revolt

Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy dared the Centre to introduce the Telangana bill in Parliament and vowed to defeat it in the state Assembly.
“Let’s see how the Centre introduces the bill in the Parliament and gets it passed. We will defeat the state reorganization bill when it comes to the state Assembly,” Reddy told a gathering here.
“The draft bill has many loopholes and constitutional violations. We will debate every issue and rip it apart in the assembly.’’
He said there was no politics in his support for united Andhra and insisted he was “only concerned with the people’s welfare’’.
The chief minister accused Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime minister Manmohan Singh of being “deaf and dumb” to the agitation for united Andhra Pradesh without naming them. This is the first time he has publicly criticized the central leadership.
“The state has catapulted you (Congress) to power at the centre by giving 33 MPs and you are dividing it now,” he said. He wondered if it was justifiable to divide the state just because TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao demanded separate Telangana.
