"What is Congress party's stand on the issue? On what basis your party MLAs and MPs are leading agitations? Why are they trying to provoke people? Congress and the Central Government lack any direction. They are only trying to gain political mileage by provoking people from the two regions," Reddy told reporters in Hyderabad.
"Their only agenda is to win MP seats from the two regions to make Rahul Gandhi Prime Minister. Congress is not bothered about people of Andhra Pradesh," he said.
Reddy took exception to Congress leaders from Telangana and non-Telangana region voicing the separate statehood and united Andhra Pradesh demands, respectively. The Telangana issue should be resolved in a congenial and harmonious atmosphere, he said.

He also demanded that the Andhra Pradesh government should make estimates of crop losses due to recent heavy rains in several districts of the state and supply free seeds to farmers for alternative crops.
"The farmers should also be given 50 kilos of urea and potash per acre free of cost. The government should give Rs 10,000 within a month to farmers whose crop got damaged.
Compensation should be given for house damages. The residents of island villages in coastal districts, who are displaced by floods every year, should be provided pucca (permanent) houses at safer places," he demanded.
