Centre firm on delivering T: UPA minister

Union Health Minister and member of Group of Ministers on Telangana issue Ghulam Nabi Azad has made it clear that the Congress-led UPA government was firm on carving out separate Telangana State under any circumstances.

Speaking to media persons on premises of Parliament, Ghulam Nabi Azad said the AP Reorganisation Bill 2013 will be discussed in the Union Cabinet this evening. He said they have been leaving no stone unturned to get the Telangana Bill passed in current session of Parliament. He also said the State Assembly had sent a resolution to the President that the Telangana Bill was incomplete and highly superficial.

Meanwhile, the people’s representatives from both Telangana and Seemandhra regions have been pouring into the national capital and stepped up efforts. Both the factions were lobbying for and against the bifurcation of the State by meeting the President, Prime Minister and leaders of all national parties.
