Press Release
We are herewith releasing the text of the letter addressed to the Prime Minister by the CPI(M) General Secretary with regard to the situation in Andhra Pradesh, sent today.
Dear Shri Manmohan Singhji,
I am writing to you in connection with the situation in Andhra Pradesh in the wake of the agitation for a separate state of Telengana. For the past three weeks the Telengana region has been paralysed by the agitation.
It is now nine months since the Sri Krishna Committee submitted its report on Telengana and Andhra Pradesh. We had expected that the Government of India would take a decision on the matter after considering the report.
All political parties and various sections of society in Andhra Pradesh had submitted their views to the Sri Krishna Committee. Hence, there is no need for further consultations with political parties.
Procrastination will only worsen the situation.
I would urge you to see that a decision is taken on the matter without any further delay.
(Prakash Karat)
Dr. Manmohan Singh
Prime Minister

Government of India
