Aam Aadmi Party has always maintained that a new state of Telangana should be announced without further procrastination. It has also emphasized that the new state must belong to all people living in the present region of Telangana without any discrimination, that it must effectively protect the rights of minorities, have mechanism to guarantee the security of residents from Andhra and Rayalseema and provide for equitable sharing of water with Seemandhra.
Aam Aadmi Party believes that the creation of a separate state of Telangana will help end the bitterness and misperceptions that have grown over the years among the Telugu-speaking people and pave the way for addressing the real issues and every day concerns of ordinary people in both Telangana and Andhra.

Aam Aadmi Party on principle supports the formation of smaller states in the Indian Union as a significant step towards bringing the locus of political power closer to the people. Demands for making governments responsive and accountable, need for redressing administrative inefficiency, and popular aspiration for a better life have set the stage for a new phase of states’ reorganization. At the same time, we recognize that small states are not the real solution to the problems of the people. Only radical political decentralization of power to gram sabha can enable people to strive towards Swaraj and a corruption free India.
