Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood refuse reconciliation talk
Cairo: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has decided not to hold any discussion over national reconciliation, Xinhua reported.
According to Gamal Heshmat, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group refused any talk about national reconciliation because it happens under "illegitimate" power.
"We can't talk about national reconciliation while the people's will is stolen ... No national reconciliation can occur unless the legitimate power comes back to the rule," said Heshmat, while referring to the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood by the army following days of protest in the country.
The Egyptian Presidency said earlier Tuesday that it had started establishing contacts with different political groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist forces, to discuss national reconciliation, expecting "most Islamist forces" to join the process.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
