National Executive Member of RSS Shri Ram Madhav said in a statement issued in New Delhi on January 4 that the comments of Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat made in Allahabad on Telangana were interpreted incorrectly by some media agencies stating that RSS was opposed to Telangana state. “The RSS chief had only commented on the flip-flops of the Central Government on Telangana that had led to unnecessary tensions and violence in Andhra Pradesh in the last couple of weeks. The RSS has always held that creating a few more states for better development and convenience of administration, without affecting national unity and without creating bad blood between people, is always welcome. Reorganising Andhra Pradesh state into two separate states of Telangana and Andhra is in line with the RSS thinking. However sentiments and views of various sections of the people in both the regions have to be taken into account and it must be ensured that the reorganisation takes place in a peaceful manner to the satisfaction of one and all in the state,” the statement said.
