Sonia `positive’ over Telangana: AP Congress

UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi is "positive" over formation of Telangana and the separate statehood would be a reality after the Srikrishna Committee submitted its report, Andhra Pradesh Congress President D Srinivas said today.

"Telangana is not going to take long. Sonia Gandhi is positive about Telangana. Telangana statehood would definitely come after the Srikrishna Committee submits its report.

Congress is in power both at the Centre and in the state. It is this government, which has to give Telangana. So, please vote for Congress," Srinivas, who is going to contest the next month’s by-election, said.

Srinivas would contest from the Nizamabad Assembly seat in the July 27 bypolls.

The bypoll to Nizamabad and nine other Assembly constituencies was necessitated as the sitting MLAs quit their seats in support of separate Telangana demand.

Srinivas, who lost to Y Lakshminarayana of BJP in the last year’s Assembly election, would face him again.

"If I win this time, I am going to get a big post and it will benefit all of us," Srinivas said.(PTI)
