Chandrababu Naidu says he is in favour of Telangana
New Delhi – Ending ambiguity over his stance on the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu has said he is in favour of carving a separate state of Telangana.
In an interview to a news channel on the fifth day of his fast on Friday, Naidu, however, added that he wants justice for Seemandhra people.
“You cannot divide state without delivering justice to everyone,” the TDP chief said.
He confirmed his support to the resolution adopted by TDP politburo in October 2008, which said: “In deference to the sentiments of people of the region, Telugu Desam supports the demand for separate statehood to Telangana.”
Naidu was later on Friday taken to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital from the venue of his fast at Andhra Bhavan here but intended to continue his fast as he did not allow a glucose drip. Doctors said his condition was stable.
