Asserting that Telangana is something that has already been promised, the government on Friday asked all parties to settle the issue finally as factions for and against bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh continued disruption of Parliamentary proceedings.

“Let us see. This is something, which is already promised,” Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters outside Parliament.

He was asked whether the Union Cabinet will clear the Telangana bill in its meeting this evening so that it can be brought before Parliament for passage.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said disruptions over Telangana are not a Congress versus other parties issue.

“This issue is not about Congress MPs. It’s a question of Seemandhra MPs versus TDP MPs. My appeal is to all members is that they have to understand that if the issue is not solved in the 15th Lok Sabha, it will have to be settled in the next.

“Even then there will 17 MPs from Telangana and 25 from Seemandhra. This matter can only be put to rest by Parliament and by vote because there will always be members from Telangana and from Seemandhra. You can oppose it but opposing is different from obstruction. Disrupting Parliament proceedings weakens democracy and Parliamentary system,” Nath told reporters.

To a question as to whether the bill is expected to come to Parliament next week, Nath said, “We can always expect.”

CPI-M leader Basudev Acharia alleged that the no-confidence motion notice by Congress members shows that the disruptions are happening at the behest of the ruling party itself.

“They (Congress) do not want Parliament to run. They did not want the anti-corruption bills to be passed. Had they been serious about passing the anti-corruption bills, they could have brought it much earlier. We will not allow the passage of any bill in the din without a debate,” he said.

    सभी राजनैतिक पार्टियों को केंद्र की बात सुनते हुए तेलांगाना के हित में इस मसले को सुलझा लेना चाहिए.

    It is unfortunate that Kirankumar , as a CM , should have resorted to rabble rousing and taking a partial view. By acknowledging that the new state would be short of power he indirectly agreed that Telangana was discriminated in the power sector. And by unnecessarily exaggerating the power deficit he probably dented his credibility because as a CM he has recourse to the state machinery to give him the right picture. Stoking fears, feeding apprehensions of the agitating students and sections of Seemandhra society is unbecoming of a person who is holding the highest executive post in the state. It is unstatesmanlike and is anti consuonal./ anti Telangana move , Since as a prime state functionary he took an oath of office that he would be beyond petty and parochial concerns. At a time of de-merger no politician should aggravate the situation and vitiate the climate. shame full act .he has not got any morality . Telangana Bill tabled in AP embly; lawmakers tear and burn copies
