"The problem will be solved by a solution. It should not create a bigger problem. This is my request to the Central government and the committee. Before any decision is taken, these concerns have to be addressed," he said.

Addressing a press conference nine days after the Congress Working Committee announced its decision to form a separate Telangana state, he sounded optimistic that the Central government would move forward, after offering solutions to the above mentioned problems.
