Telangana: JAC gives Cong ultimatum till Apr 24
Agencies: Hyderabad, Apr 04 2012
The Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (JAC) today threatened to intensify the separate statehood agitation once again if the ruling Congress fails to make its stand clear on the issue before the Parliament resumes for the second part of the Budget session on April 24.
Congress should clear its stand on Telangana issue as it had promised to deliver the separate state in the 2004 and 2009 elections, JAC convener M Kodandaram told reporters here.
The MPs and MLAs of Congress should put pressure on their party leadership towards accepting the separate statehood demand, the JAC convenor said in the background of the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s statement last month that four political parties in Andhra Pradesh — Congress, TDP, MIM and YSR Congress –were yet to make up their mind about their stand on Telangana.

It’s up to Centre, Parliament to decide on Telangana: Panel
Hyderabad, May 7, 2010
The final decision on the Telangana issue has to be taken by Parliament and the Centre, and the committee headed by him would help the government in making up its mind, Justice B N Srikrishna, Chairman of the panel, said on Friday.
“Now, what happens is in the hands of Parliament ultimately, which means the Central Government will have to take a view on the matter. But the view of the local people is a big factor which needs to be considered,” he told reporters here.
When asked about Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s statement in Parliament on Thursday that the solution lies not in Delhi but in Andhra Pradesh, he said, “Frankly, I have not read the statement, but if the statement is what you are saying, I assume, he does not want to get into a controversy when a committee is looking at it and finally is going to advise the government.
“Now, sitting in Delhi, how are they going to assess it? They won’t be able to assess. Therefore, they say these four gentlemen and one lady (all panel members) will go and tell what is the local view, consensus view and tell us what do you think of the whole thing,” he said.
Srikrishna said the mission of the panel is to help the Government take a decision on the contentious issue.
“…Parliament is to decide. Andhra Assembly or Andhra Government cannot decide. Ultimately, what is to be done, needs to be done by Parliament. To help the Central Government make up its mind, all this exercise is going on,” he said. (more…)
