A special cabinet meeting has been convened on Wednesday morning,which is expected to approve the proposal,initiating the process of creation of the new state.

While the Congress,by taking the political call,has moved this controversial subject out of its folder,there are still many imponderables that will have to be dealt with before Telangana comes into existence.


Though Congress leaders on Tuesday claimed that the process can be completed in four to five months,the CWC resolution was silent about any deadline. This may be for good reason as the road ahead promises to be arduous,allowing many opportunities for anti-Telangana groups to interject and delay the process.
