Reacting to the passage of the Telangana Bill in Lok Sabha amid din and chaos, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh has said if the MPs had shown “parliamentary skills” the democracy would have emerged stronger.
“T-Bill passed by Voice Vote in a din. Only if MPs had shown Parliamentary Skills and not Muscle Power Democracy would have emerged stronger,” Digvijay said in a tweet today.
The Bill to carve out Telangana, the 29th state, by splitting Andhra Pradesh was yesterday passed by the Lok Sabha with Congress and BJP coming together on the issue, amidst din, chaos and an unprecedented black out of television coverage.
The Congress leader also said that the concerns of the Seemandhra people, who had been vehemently opposing the bifurcation of the state, would be addressed properly.
“Concerns of Seema Andhra have been addressed in the Bill to the extent possible. Giving UT status to Hyderabad would have denied rights to MLAs,” Singh tweeted.

Hyderabad, the nerve-centre of Telangana, is the most sought after capital by the rival region of Seemandhra.
In the Bill, the government has promised to set up an expert committee within 45 days of formation of Telangana to give suggestions for a new capital of residuary Andhra Pradesh.
It envisages that Hyderabad will be common capital of Telangana and Seemandhra for ten years which includes the existing area notified as Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.
Singh also expects the people of Telangana region to be considerate to those hailing from Seemandhra and now settled in Hyderabad.
“Telengana people have to be generous and accommodative to all those who have come from Seema Andhra and have made H’bad their Home,” he further tweeted.
