"I will fight to keep the state united until the last. The Central government should honour sentiments of the people of all regions in an equal manner," he said.
He would strongly oppose bifurcation of the state during his meeting with the Group of Ministers in New Delhi later this month, he said, adding that he is not bothered about Chief Minister's post.
"I am not worried about my post. I will stand for a united state. The Centre should reconsider its decision on bifurcation of the state. The state will not develop if it is divided. Both the states have to suffer a lot. Maoist menace
will increase in both the regions if it is divided," he said.
He said that the Telangana region would suffer more than the Seemandhra region after bifurcation of the state.
He said that at present the state spends Rs 43,000 crore on government employees' salaries and pensions every year and after bifurcation both states would have to increase this by another 50 percent.
"It is better to keep the state united for the sake of the people and for over all development of the state," he said.
