Andhra Pradesh chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy said on Saturday that the Centre will come up with a solution on Telangana soon.”I have given my opinion to Congress leaders on what is happening in the state,” Reddy told reporters.
Reddy reiterated his party’s stand and said that the issue of President’s rule in Andhra Pradesh does not arise. Earlier, Congress party had ruled out imposition of President’s rule in Andhra Pradesh in the wake of the volatile situation in the Telangana region.
“There is no question of president’s rule for the moment,” health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is also in charge of the Congress affairs in Andhra Pradesh, told reporters after a high-level meeting attended by chief negotiator and finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, other central ministers, Reddy and state leaders.
“Today’s meeting is a part of the consultation process,” said Azad, who last week submitted to the party central leasdership a report on the situation in the state. He said a solution to the statehood issue may not be found “in a day or two”.
