If Telangana is bifurcated, the Centre will have to confront demands for separate statehood in several parts of the country, including Chidambaram's home state, before solving the Telangana issue, Buddha Prasad said adding because of the Union Government's December 9 unilateral statement, the people of the state were vertically divided and the state was thrown into turmoil.JAC convenor Kolanukonda Sivaji was present.
