Hyderabad, Jan 23:

Telugu Desam Party MLA K Prabhakar Reddy on Thursday said that it would take a lifetime to develop Seemandhra region on par with Hyderabad.

Participating in the discussion on State Reorganisation Bill in the State Legislative Assembly, Prabhakar Reddy claimed that Hyderabad was developed as a modern city during the TDP’s regime. He said people from Seemandhra region have invested all their assets and resources for the development of Hyderabad. However, he said that it would take a lifetime to develop another city as the capital of Seemandhra region. Expressing fears that the fate of Seemandhra people was at stake, he demanded that the Centre take the responsibility of development of Seemandhra region, in case the State gets divided.

Prabhakar Reddy said that the Centre has not specified anything in the Bill on how the Seemandhra region would be developed. He demanded that the Centre immediately release Rs 5 lakh crore for Seemandhra region.

Other MLAs including K Samaiah (TRS), Vijaya Prasad, Ramanjaneyulu (Congress), Ramesh (TRS), B Usha Rani (Congress), K Swati (Cong) and others participated in the debate.
