Jaganmohan meets Rajnath, seeks support against AP bifurcation

New Delhi, PTI | Updated : 17 November 2013, 11:12 PM

YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy met BJP President Rajnath Singh here, urging the party to oppose the Telangana Bill which is likely to be introduced in Parliament during the winter session beginning on December 5.

BJP, however, is clear that it wants a separate Telangana to be carved out of Andhra Pradesh.

The meeting assumes significance as the NDA is scouting for new allies ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

Recently, Reddy's mother, Y S Vijayamma had also met BJP leaders.

Jaganmohan, in the city as part of his nationwide tour to garner support from political parties for the united Andhra, had on Saturday met CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy and senior CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury.     While CPI refused to express solidarity with YSR Congress, CPI(M) maintained its position against any division of states.

Jagan has claimed that 75 per cent of the state's population is against bifurcation.
