BJP leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy on Monday held AICC President Sonia Gandhi responsible for the suicide committed by nearly 1200 students and youth for Telangana State.
Speaking to media persons here, Nagam said that Sonia Gandhi promised to give Telangana while addressing a public meeting in 2004 elections. However, she went back on her promise and delayed the decision. However, after sensing that the Congress party would be wiped out of the region, Sonia Gandhi initiated the process of Telangana formation. He said it was due to Sonia Gandhi’s delay that the youth committed suicide for the statehood cause.
Nagam also condemned inclusion of seven mandals of Khammam to Seemandhra region due to Polavaram project.
