The Bharatiya Janata Party will move Telangana private bill in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.
With Rajya Sabha chairman Hamid Ansari giving permission to discuss the Bill, BJP member Prakash Javedkar would introduce the Telangana Bill. The Rajya Sabha is likely to take up discussion on the Telangana private bill for two hours on Friday afternoon at 2 pm.
Meanwhile, former TRS MP b Vinod Kumar held discussions with Nationalist Congress Party, Communist Party of India, Janata Dal (United) and Bahujan Samaj Party seeking their support for the Bill. The TRS is also consulting all national-level leaders, who are in favour of smaller states formation.
Some ministers from the Telangana region are also heading to New Delhi to mount pressure on the high command to take an early decision on bifurcation of state issue. The Ministers want the high command to take a decision on creation of Telangana state before the completion of winter session of Parliament.
The introduction of Telangana private bill in Rajya Sabha might trigger the Congress party to spell out its stand on the statehood issue. (INN)
