Will not allow "Andhra domination" in Hyderabad: Srinivas Goud

Telangana minister V Srinivas Goud on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 said that the TRS government will not allow 'Andhra domination' in Hyderabad.

He said Hyderabad is the property of Telangana.

Srinivas Goud was angry at Opposition Congress leaders urging Governor to invoke Section 8 of AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, to prevent demolition of Secretariat by KCR in Hyderabad.

Section 8 gives powers to Governor in Hyderabad, the common capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for a period of ten years till 2024.

Srinivas Goud said only Andhra people talk about Section 8 and someone from Telangana seeking Section 8 in Hyderabad amounts to doing slavery for Andhra people.

Goud said AP government itself vacated Hyderabad and handed over all the government buildings to Telangana government and it's the prerogative of Telangana government over how to utilise those buildings.

Goud warned that if anyone talks about Section 8 in Hyderabad, their tongue will be cut.
