Several Congress ministers from Telangana region on Thursday sought to allay fears of people from Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra Pradesh over formation of separate Telangana state.
The ministers appealed to people of the two regions to cooperate in the formation of separate state.
State major industries minister J Geeta Reddy, information minister DK Aruna, women and child welfare minister Sunita Laxma Reddy told reporters people and employees from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema need not have any fears or feelings of insecurity.
Telangana and (new) Andhra Pradesh can co-exist peacefully and prosper, Geeta Reddy said.
Asked about her name doing the rounds for the post of chief minister of the proposed Telangana state, she said it was premature talk.
