Centre invites two representatives from nine political parties for all-party meet

December 12, 2012

The Union Home Ministry on Wednesday sent invitations to the presidents of nine political parties in the State for an all-party meeting slated to be held on December 28, 2012 in an effort to find a solution to the Telangana issue.

The Union Home Ministry in its invitation stated that the meeting is being convened to restart the dialogue on the Telangana issue based on the representations made by number of MPs and it will be held at 10am on December 28 at 10am in the North Block, New Delhi. The nine parties that received invitations were Congress, TDP, TRS, BJP, CPI, CPI (M), YSRCP, MIM, and Lok Satta. It may be recalled here that the BJP, TRS and CPI have already taken a clear stand in favour of separate Telangana while the TDP, YSRCP and MIM remain undecided while CPI (M) had stoutly opposed Telangana.

'Meeting an eyewash', says TDP leader Kadiam Srihari

TDP senior leader Kadiam Srihari described the meeting as an eye wash as it was being convened to pacify the Congress MPs from Telangana region who were upset over the delaying tactics of the party. He said that it is unfortunate that the Congress has not learnt anything from the past mistakes and continues to commit the same. He said that the TDP will hold a meeting in three or four days and take a decision to send one or two representatives for the meet.

'Unethical methods of Congress exposed', says TRS MLA KT Rama Rao

Unethical methods of the Congress party has been exposed with the invitation by the Centre for the meeting inviting two of representatives from a party, said the TRS MLA KT Rama Rao. He asked the party presidents of the TDP, YSRCP and Congress to attend the meeting and specify their stand on the issue. He warned that the padayatras undertaken by Chandrababu Naidu and Sharmila will witness the anger of the people of the region if they did not present a single view on the issue.

'No clarify in the invitations', says BJP senior leader Bandaru Dattatreya

The BJP senior leader and former union minister Bandaru Dattatreya said that the BJP's core committee will meet soon to decide on the invitation. He said that it is vague and lacked clarity and said that the Centre is not showing any sincerity on the issue.

'Party has clarity on the issues', says YSRCP spokesman Bajireddi Goverdhan Reddy

The YSRCP spokesman Bajireddi Goverdhan said that the party would certainly spell out its stand with clarity. He said that it is the Congress that has to make its mind open on the statehood issue.
