There were few state leaders who were not allowed at the time of bifurcation and the Parliament doors were closed at that time and it had done in a very unparliamentarily," Kalyan said.

There is a huge loss for Andhra Pradesh and even Telanagana. There were many promises made for the Telangana which aren't fulfilled yet."

I is not about the power game and it is not about the political but it is the question of governance." (ANI)
