Lagadapati creates flutter in Cong circles

A lot of debate was triggered in the Congress circles over MP Lagadapati  Rajagopal’s frank thinking that all candidates who quit for Telangana would win in the Tuesday's by-elections.

Some Congress leaders from Telangana welcomed the opinion of the Congress MP  from Vijayawada. Past  surveys conduced by  Rajagopal yielded almost  accurate results, so the Congress circles are  seriously  discussing the  next move.

The survey was  conducted by RG Flash team from Eluru. The survey, however, could not be  conducted in Nizamabad urban segment.  Here it was a prestigious issue for PCC chief D Srinivas who contested the byelections.

Telangana  sentiment was there among the  voters and all the three major  parties, the Congress, the Telugu Desam  and the Telangana Rashtra Samiti have gone to the voters on the promise that they would  fetch them a separate Telangana.

However, the voters have the full confidence that ruling Congress is the only party that can achieve separate Telangana. The Telangana  sentiment is there in the Telangana  region but it is not uniform in all the places. At  certain places it is high and in  certain places  it  does not  exist. The people  wanted to re-elect those who resigned for the sake of  Telangana so all those who have resigned are likely to win the by-elections,  Lagadipold told reporters.

Referring to TRS  chief KCR’s statement that if separate Telangana is not declared by  Dec 31 then there  will be bloodshed in the State, he said. People always love peace and like to live in peaceful atmosphere. All those leaders who threaten bloodshed will not survive for long in politics,  he noted.
