Sankaracharya fights again division of Andhra
 

Guntur (AP) : Opposition to bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh came out from a spiritual head today with Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati saying the division would be "disastrous" as it would give Maoists a free run.

"If Andhra Pradesh is split it would be disastrous. Maoists will become stronger," the pontiff told reporters here. "There is no need to bifurcate the state where all people speak Telugu." His remarks come in the wake of ongoing agitation for separate Telangana state.

The Sankaracharya pleaded for unity of the country and deplored linguistic chauvinism. The religious leader is here on a three-day visit.
