Amid slogan-shouting by TRS and other members in support of a separate statehood demand, the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly today passed a Bill and conducted other official business. The TRS members went into the Well of House and raised slogans in support of a separate Telangana as soon as the day began.

After his appeals went unheeded, Speaker N Manohar adjourned the House for an hour. However, it was the same scene even after the House re-assembled. A number of ruling Congress members from the Telangana region also joined in.

As the slogan shouting continued, Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy read out the agenda and ‘The Andhra Pradesh Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management (Amendment) Bill, 2013’ was passed. Other items in the agenda like granting demands for vote on account 2014-15 and supplementary estimates 2013-14 were also done.

              Recent surveys show over 75% of Hyderabad's residents want it to be a Union Territory if Telangana is created, and the majority of Andhra Pradesh wants a united state. If the state is divided to respect the wishes of Telangites, Hyderabad should be made a Union Territory to respect the wishes of Hyderabadites.For economic reasons, most Telangites would prefer a United Andhra Pradesh over a Telangana without Hyderabad. Parting with Hyderabad would lead to a mive deficit for Seemandhra and Rayalaseema. Truly compensating residual Andhra Pradesh for this loss would take away a mive amount of money from India's annual budget. Why would the rest of India consent to this?Politicians tend to favor their own region, which has left Telangana feeling cheated. This problem is not unique to Andhra Pradesh, and a solution needs to be found at the national level. Gerrymandering the state for political gain is both unethical and expensive. Corruption at its worst.

                  Killing Sentiments is better than studnets killing themselves. Understand Telangana is bound to happen. Stopping it is not a solution, do you still think Andhra pradesh can continue to govern here.
