Chandrababu should be blamed for the division: Former CM - Sakshi Post

The speaker of Andhra Pradesh Assembly, Nadendla Manohar who was severely criticised for introducing the Telangana Bill in the Assembly, by united Andhra supporters, has found support in his family. His father and Former AP CM Nadendla Bhaskar Rao has come out in support of his son and has lambasted his critics. 

Coming down heavily on TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, the former CM placed the blame of state division on the latter. 

Bhaskara Rao said that Naidu had written a letter to the Centre in support of Telangana, but now he has changed his tone. "He spoke for Muslims till recently and now he is backing RSS. And now, Naidu who keeps changing his stance is commenting on me and my son," he said. 

Questioning Naidu's claims for 'equal Justice', Bhaskara Rao asked Naidu to explain the meaning of 'equal justice' to him.  Does it mean dividing Krishna river into two? " I don't understand what Chandrababu Naidu wants," he said adding that Chandrababu is extremely adept at fixing deals. 

Bhaskara Rao also took serious exception to the mistakes in the tabled Telangana Bill. He pointed out that the Ministers were were notorious for not reading bills, but what were the officials doing? He added that the whole Bill was drafted by those who have an agenda against Telugu people and that the bill is an  “exercise in absurdity” 

Pointing to the negligence in drafting the Bill, Bhaskara Rao criticised those who prepared the Bill and asked them how could Tamil Nadu be mentioned in place of Andhra Pradesh? He added that the bill did not even mention the benefits that the division will bring for the Telugu people. "For whose benefit state was dividing?," he questioned.  

He further added that he was a Vishalandhra (united Andhra) supporter and reminded everyone that he had participated in the Vishalandhra movement.

Substantiating his arguments, Bhaskara Rao cited the example of Obama, and said that when Russia's PM Vladimir Putin stopped Obama from going to war in Syria, the latter conceded. Also, in Canada when the Government wanted to divide one region, it faced tremendous backlash from the public and the Government had to backtrack on his decision.
