The YSR Congress on Tuesday told Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar that it is against tabling the Andhra Pradesh Re-Organisation Bill 2013 in Parliament.

"It is the firm view of our party that the Bill should not be tabled in the Parliament after it was rejected by the state Assembly which moved a resolution to that effect and was carried," YSRCP president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy said in a letter to Kumar.

"Our party is of the view that it is morally not proper to table a Bill rejected by the Assembly. We have opposed the Bill and bifurcation of the state at many forums and will continue to do so even in the Parliament as we feel that the division is undemocratic," he said.

Jaganmohan Reddy, Lok Sabha member from Kadapa, would leave for Delhi on Tuesday to attend the Parliament session beginning tomorrow and to campaign against division of Andhra Pradesh, party sources said.

Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, Telugu Desam Party Chief N Chandrababu Naidu, TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, leaders of the Congress and the TDP from Telangana and Seema-Andhra (as Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions are together known) are already camping in Delhi as the Centre gears up to table the Telangana bill in Parliament.

Naidu met President Pranab Mukherjee, BJP President Rajnath Singh and other leaders on the issue of state's division.

The TRS president has met Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo Lalu Prasad, RLD leader Ajit Singh among others to drum up support for the Telangana Bill.
