Published on Feb 21, 2012 10:10 am IST

Lok Satta party president Jayprakash Narayan on Tuesday stated that the government should make its stand clear on Telangana statehood demand as it has been obstructing the functioning of the House frequently.

Talking to media persons at Assembly media point, he said that the government should show its commitment on the Telangana issue if it really wants to resolve it. If the government thinks that the discussion on Telangana issue would create tension, he asked the government to take up discussion after the announcement of by-election results.

“At least now the government should announce a specific time frame and date for taking up discussion on Telangana statehood demand and make its stand clear on it,” he said. “It is not good for the state to escape from its responsibility by shifting the blame on the Centre,” he pointed out.

Dr JP also advised the opposition TDP to cooperate with the State Government in resolving the Telangana statehood issue. Stating that many public issues were being neglected due to the statehood demand, he said that the government, all political parties and Speaker should take steps to run the House harmoniously. If the government do not relent, how could the people’s problems be addressed in the House, he asked.

He also demanded that the government announce what steps it is taking to end corruption in the welfare schemes and programmes. (INN)
