Few ministers in Andhra Pradesh, demand apology from AICC Secretary and NRI MP Madhu Yashki Goud for their statement for accussing the Chief Minister of scuttling the creation of a separate Telangana state. It became a hot issue when the Chief Minister's interview to a Telugu daily in which he ruled out formation of Telangana before 2009 elections.

Mohammed Ali Shabbir and T Jeevan Reddy, both ministers said, "NRI MP made controversial statements despite the Congress high command asking the party leaders not to air their views in public. Yashki lacked the stature to criticise the Chief Minister and he should know his limits."

NRI MP Madhu Yashki refused to apologize and said, "I did not make any personal attack on Rajasekhara Reddy but was only reflecting the sentiments of the Telangana people.

TRS workers attack minister's convoy, clash with Cong activists
By R Avadhani

Hyderabad, Jan 23: The Telangana issue is becoming murkier by the day. If it was the senior leaders, who had a field day yesterday, today it was the turn of ministers from the region who appear to have determined to show the seniors their place.
In a related development, T-demand took a violent turn and spilled onto the streets at Siddipet in Medak district with TRS activists trying to attack the convoy of Cooperation Minister Mohd Fareeduddin and ending up clashing with Congress workers.

In the State capital, as Energy Minister Mohd Ali Shabber sounded a warning to the `detractors,' the Telangana Regional Development Board chairman V Purushotham Reddy felt the Telangana movement has reached a ``now or never'' stage.
Addressing a press conference here, Shabber found fault with CWC member G Venkataswamy, MP Madhu Yashki Goud and Purushottam Reddy for their remarks against Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy. ``The senior leaders are damaging the interests of the party. We do not tolerate if anyone harms the interests of the party for their personal agenda,'' he warned.

The Minister also demanded that Madhu Yashki Goud withdraw his comments against the Chief Minister and an tender apology. ``Being the mentor of Madhu, I advise him to withdraw his comments or face the wrath of people of Nizamabad,'' he said.
At a separate press conference, Roads and Buildings Minister T Jeevan Reddy recalled how the senior leader surrendered before the party high command after raising the issue in 1969. ``Venkataswamy went on record saying many times that carving out T-State is not immediately possible and UPA, being a coalition government, has its own limitations,'' he pointed out.
While claiming that he is also a pro-Telangana activist, the Minister, however, said it is not that easy to carve out Telangana.
But, an unfazed Purushottam Reddy said that it is `now or never' for Telangana. ``We will discuss the matter with Sonia Gandhi and if there is no chance of formation of Telangana, I will quit,'' he reiterated.

Reacting sharply to Shabber's demand, Madhu said that there is no question of apologising as he never said anything against the Chief minister. ``I fail to understand why the Chief Minister gave the interview to a vernacular daily when the party high-command has clapmed a ban on party leaders talking to media on the T-issue,'' he said.

Meanwhile, the proposed meeting of junior MLAs from the region at the residence of Nalgonda MLA K Venkat Reddy has been cancelled for obvious reasons........
