TRS seeks BSP support to stall Lok Sabha proceedings

November 21, 2011

With the winter session of the Parliament beginning on Tuesday, TRS party president K Chandrasekhar Rao has left to New Delhi to seek the support of Bahujan Samaj Party to stall the proceedings of the Lok Sabha by raising the demand of a separate Telangana state. Speaking to reporters before leaving to New Delhi, KCR said that he would speak to Mayawati who is the BSP president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. He thanked Mayawati for bringing the Telangana issue to the forefront by passing a resolution for splitting Uttar Pradesh into four states. The TRS president said that he would move a adjournment motion on the parliament on the Telangana issue.

Chandrasekhar Rao also warned the Congress party that it would be doomed if the UPA government forms a States Reorganization Committee to counter the UP Chief Minister's move to split the Uttar Pradesh. He urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take up the resolution passed by the UP Vidhan Sabha along with the separate Telangana state. Welcoming the decision taken by Mayawati, KCR said that development is only possible by smaller administrative units. He said that the Telangana state would not require States Reorganization Committee as stated by Congress spokesperson Rasheed Alwi.

Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha member and co-chairman of the Telangana Congress steering committee K Keshava Rao said that the resolution by UP Assembly for splitting Uttar Pradesh to four smaller states would help the Telangana cause. Speaking to reporters separately, Keshava Rao said that even the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee is favoring the State to be divided into smaller units. He said that although the move by Mayawati is to gain political mileage for the 2012 Assembly elections, it would have a positive effect on the separate statehood of Telangana. Peddapalli MP G Vivek said that the Congress leadership should convince the UPA allies on the need for creation of separate Telangana.
