TDP leader Byreddy Rajasekhar Reddy’s Deeksha demanding separate Rayalaseema state invited maximum criticism from Former Congress Minister T. Jeevan Reddy. “I demand Byreddy to come out clear on separate state issue. Telangana leaders would extend full support for creation of separate Rayalaseema state but leaders of that region should have to clarify their stand on Telangana first. At one point, they are demanding a separate Rayalaseema state saying injustice was done to them and on the other hand they are extending full support for United Andhra Pradesh. If they come out clearly with their stand then it would be easier for Telangana leaders to support them.
