All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Digvijaya Singh, who is also in-charge of Andhra Pradesh, also insisted that there is no threat from Kiran Reddy to quit the party.
    
"We have given the right and freedom to all Congressmen in the state of Andhra Pradesh to air their views regarding bifurcation of the State. Not for anything else," Digvijay Singh told reporters.
    
He was commenting on a sit-in in the national capital earlier this week staged by Kiran Reddy, who also met President Pranab Mukherjee to seek his intervention in stopping division of the state.
    
Digvijay said that Kiran Reddy has not made any comment against Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
    
The government decided to go ahead with the Telangana Bill despite the Andhra Pradesh Assembly rejecting it and Kiran Reddy leading the Opposition to the proposed bifurcation.
    
On BJP, Digvijay Singh said that the principal Opposition party has expressed support to the Telangana Bill and must walk the talk.
    
"BJP has committed to support the Telangana State and they should do now what they have promised. They should walk the talk," he added.
