In Jairam Ramesh’s candid book, ‘Old History and New Geography – Bifurcating Anhdra Pradesh’ Senior Congress leader revealed that it was Ghulam Nabi Azad who felt that announcing bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh would yield electoral dividends to the Congress party, that eventually backfired.


Even though this was the popular view on why Congress went against Srikrishna Committee recommendations, Jairam Ramesh’s revelations put an official seal on the same. Congress was eyeing the 17 seats in Telangana and the growing strength of YSRCP in Seemandhra has convinced them that it was any way a lost cause; Chidambaram’s statement on December 9, 2009 was an important moment, and Ghulam Nabi only added fuel to the fire in his argument that seemed to have convinced the Congress High command.
