Union Minister of Textiles Kavuri Sambasiva Rao changed his stand from Samaikyandhra to Rayala Telangana.
After facing Samaikyandhra heat during his recent visit to Chintalapudi, Kavuri's tour in Eluru continued with heavy police cover.
Kavuri maintained that he is and will be a Samikyandhra supporter, but if division were to be inevitable, he wanted Anantapur and Kurnool to merge in Telangana.
He also observed that Bhadrachalam should be left in Andhra to complete the Polavaram project. If Telangana bill comes to Parliament for approval, he cannot take part in that, Kavuri added.
He also said that he will decide then, whether to resign or skip the Parliament session. The Union Minister predicted that there will be changes in the Telangana bill.
