Government fields junior minister for Telangana debate
Hyderabad, August 18, 2012 IBN Live

The Union government signalled a lack of urgency on the Telangana issue by fielding a junior minister to reply to a Rajya Sabha debate on a private member’s bill on separate statehood for the region.
The bill, tabled by the BJP’s Prakash Javdekar, was defeated by a voice vote, and served only to pinpoint the various parties’ stance on smaller states.

Most notably, the Samajwadi Party, an important prop of the UPA at the Centre, strongly opposed smaller states, because it would limite the bargaining power of the larger entity from which they would be carved.

After several parties spoke on the issue, minister of state for home Jitendra Singh stood up to deliver a proforma reply that has been stated by numerous other functionaries of the government previously.
A suitable decision will be taken on Telangana issue after consultations with all political parties, he said. (మరింత…)

Expelled from Samajwadi Party, Amar Singh bats for separate Telangana

New Delhi: Pushed into political obscurity following his expulsion from the Samajwadi Party, Amar Singh’s desperateness to remain relevant seems to be growing by the day.

With his mass contact programmes with Kshatriyas and backward classes of Uttar Pradesh (UP) not yielding much publicity, the former SP general secretary has chosen to join the Telangana leaders fighting for statehood.

Addressing an agitation organised by the Telangana Lawyers Joint Action Committee at Parliament Street on Monday, Singh said, “The Telangana movement has got muscle and massive support. I want to extend every possible help to the movement and be its face and voice.” (మరింత…)
