"It is an unfortunate decision announced in an autocratic manner. The Congress communicated the decision in a hasty manner," he said.

He said the decision was not in sync with the Sri Krishna Committee report and the report was not taken into consideration while bifurcating the state. "The eighth chapter of the report was kept confidential," he said.

Chawdhury, who has been protesting the decision and has remained seated in the Well ever since the Monsoon Session began on August 5, said people who have contributed to the development of Hyderabad and made it their home are living in "jittery" due to the utterances of some political leaders.

"A civil war is going on in Andhra Pradesh. Is it not an unholy approach of Congress on the issue to cover-up its mistakes," he posed.

He demanded that the agenda and supporting documents placed before Congress on July 30 while taking the decision to bifurcate the state should be made public.

He said the proposed Bill for creation of Telangana should be supported by a financial memorandum.
