Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj today charged that the Congress enacted a deceitful drama and created obstacles in the process of granting statehood to Telangana.

Addressing a series of election meetings in Telangana, she said the BJP was genuinely happy about the creation of a separate Telangana state. The party was always in favour of statehood.

She claimed that only because of pressure from BJP the creation of Telangana was expedited and said people from both Telangana and Seemandhra should live like brothers.

She said the BJP would make sincere efforts for the development of Telangana, besides doing justice to Seemandhra region.

The BJP leader said the Krishna and the Godavari waters should be utilised for the well being of the people of both states.

She appealed to the people to support the BJP-TDP combine in the coming elections and charged TRS chief KCR with having no clarity on the development of Telangana.
