Demanding that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) take a clear stand on the separate statehood issue, the Telangana political Joint Action Commitee (JAC) today appealed to the people not to cooperate with the party for a public meeting proposed at Karimnagar.
"Telugu Desam Party should take a clear stand on Telangana. Without taking a clear stand whatever they say in support of Telangana will not have credibility," JAC Convenor M. Kodandaram told reporters here.
He appealed to the Telangana people and other supporters not to cooperate with the party over the public meeting proposed to be organised by TDP at Karimnagar today.
TDP leaders had submitted separate region-wise representation to the Sri Krishna Committee. The party did not submit a single stance on the Telangana issue to the committee which has been the object of sharp criticism from TRS and other pro-Telangana groups.
The JAC Convenor asked the Telugu Desam leaders to get a resolution passed in support of separate Telangana demand at ‘Mahanadu’ (the party conclave) to be held soon.
In the absence of a clear stand on Telangana issue, the statements of pro-Telangana leaders in TDP would only sound hollow, the JAC convenor claimed.
