Speaking to media persons here, Devi Prasad said that the some leaders from Seemandhra region were trying to stall the process of Telangana formation on pretext or the other. However, he said that such attempts would be foiled by the pro-Telangana forces. Referring to the controversy created around Bhadrachalam division, he said that the Seemandhra leaders wanted to plunder the resources of Telangana and for the same reason they want the Bhadrachalam to be part of residual State of Andhra Pradesh.
Stating that Bhadrachalam was part and parcel of Telangana, Devi Prasad made it clear that the people of this region would accept nothing less than a perfect Telangana. He said that the Telangana with 10 districts with Hyderabad as its capital should be formed as promised in the resolution of Congress Working Committee and then approved by the Union Cabinet. Any deviations from the original proposal would not be accepted. He said that the employees of Telangana region would not allow any compromise on the statehood issue and would launch another 'war' to achieve a 'perfect Telangana'.
