Terming the role played by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in getting the bill passed in both the houses of Parliament as a historic one, BJP senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu said that people of both Telangana and Seemandhra should be happy.

Mr.Naidu said that people of Seemandhra should realize the facts that drove BJP to support the Bill and could achieve justice to Seemandhra by getting packages for all-round development.

In his speech in Rajya Sabha , he underlined the importance of carving a separate Telangana State. Giving a detailed presentation in support of his claim, Venkaiah Naidu said that the agitation for separate State was on since 1969 and nearly 1,000 people have sacrificed their lives for the cause while in Seemandhra 360 lives committed suicides that shows the intensity of the sentiments of these two regions. But, the fact is that it is difficult for people of both the regions united even at the present situation.

Venkaiah Naidu said that BJP is from the beginning is in favour of smaller States and is committed for Telangana with Hyderabad. He wanted due protection should be given to the Seemandhra people residing in Hyderabad. For that they demanded an amendment in that direction. He dealt in details the need to have justification in both the regions that prompted the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to make an announcement in the House giving financial and other packages to Seemandhra resulting equal justice to the people of both the regions.

All this was possible only with the cooperation of the BJP in getting the Bill cleared in both the House, he said.
