APNGOs Union President G Ashok Babu has informed that the Seemandhra employees would seek the support of national leaders to stop the Telangana Bill in the Parliament.
Talking to reporters after meeting Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in the State Secretariat here on Tuesday, Ashok Babu said that the APNGOs delegation would meet former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerji and other leaders seeking their help to stall the Telangana Bill in the Parliament. He expressed confidence that the leaders of other political parties would not allow the Telangana Bill to get passed in the Lok Sabha.
Ashok Babu said that the Seemandhra JAC would meet on November 24 to finalise the future strategy to keep Andhra Pradesh united.
With regard to his meeting with the Chief Minister, Ashok Babu said that he had no political discussions with Kiran Kumar Reddy and only asked for release of at least 50 per cent salaries as interim relief for the employees who went on strike demanding Samaikhyandhra. However, when asked by the reporters, he said that the APNGOs would support Kiran Kumar Reddy if he launches his own political party.
