"Nothing should be said or done that can inflame passions. I appeal to all that the bifurcation process should be peaceful," the prime minister told the delegation led by party chief K.C. Rao.

The Telangana Rashtriya Samithi leaders presented the prime minister with a memorandum on Telangana state, said the PMO.

The meeting with the prime minister took place even as MPs from the Seemandhra region of the state protested outside North Block to denounce the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
