"Definitely, they (employees from non-Telangana regions) have to go to Andhra government. There are no options here. The government must run in Andhra too. The employees from that region...they have to work in that government and our Telangana employees would work in our government," he told a gathering of pro-Telangana employees.

"Our people would get promotions. Then adjustments, promotions and at the bottom line, filling up vacancies can be done," he said.

With Rao's remark being interpreted as Andhra employees have to go back after formation of Telangana, TDP MP Nama Nageswara Rao, who belongs to the region, said, "Telangana is not the fiefdom of the TRS president."

TRS MLA T Harish Rao said that a needless controversy is being made over the comments of the party president.
