Telugu Desam Telangana Forum convenor Errabelli Dayakar Rao on Thursday stated that the Forum has not received any communication from Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar over the acceptance or rejection of their resignations submitted for the cause of separate Telangana state.
Talking to media persons after participating in Sadbhavana yatra organized by veteran freedom fighter Konda Laxman Bapuji in the city, Errabelli said that the Forum leaders are committed for the formation of Telangana state and would not reverse their decision at anytime. If the Speaker seeks explanation from the Forum, the members would press for acceptance of resignations, he claimed.
Errabelli also lauded Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal and Visalandra Mahasabha leader Parakala Prabhakar Rao in the programme and had lunch with them. In the programme, to the surprise of many, Errabelli Dayakar Rao said that both Lagadapati and Parakala did not make any comments against the Telangana.
However, Errabelli condemned the remarks of Parakala Prabhakar Rao that there was no Telangana sentiment among people and whatever Prof Jayashankar claimed about injustice meted out to Telangana was false propaganda.
