Parliament may take up Telangana Bill in February
TNN, January 11, 2014
NEW DELHI: Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Friday said the Centre would introduce the Telangana Bill before the Parliament when the state assembly returns it to the President. He indicated it could happen during the next Parliament session in February.
“President Pranab Mukherjee has given time until January 23 to return the Bill. While sending the Bill, the President has also directed the state assembly to express its opinion on the Bill,” he said at his monthly press briefing.
Separately, Congress’s Andhra Pradesh in charge Digvijay Singh clarified he had never said there would be no voting on the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Bill -2013.
“I am a democrat. I am ready to apologize if the assembly feels I have committed a breach of privilege,” he said while reacting to reports that the TDP had issued a privilege notice against him for making such a comment. He said he was ready to present himself before the assembly to explain his position.
