Telangana BJP unit was cornered in the new state over the decision of Central government to include 7 submerging mandals of Polavaram in to Andhra Pradesh. Since it is BJP ruling at the center, the state unit is finding it difficult to take a stand on this issue. Telangana BJP President Kishan Reddy has come up with a proposal. According to it, he demanded that the 7 Mandals should be kept with the Center till the completion of the project and later give them back to Telangana once the project is complete.

In such way, Kishan Reddy favoured high command’s decision of going on with Polavaram project and at the same time heeded to Telangana people’s demand of keeping those mandals in Telangana itself. Kishan Reddy gave a representation of the same to the Union Home Ministry. Kishan Reddy said Rajnath Singh spoke favourable to it and assured him that he will speak to Telangana BJP unit very soon regarding this issue.
