After two long hours of dramatic meeting, Central Cabinet has approved the formation of Telangana state for which a table note was placed before the committee this evening. Union minister Sushil Shinde confirmed to media that cabinet has approved the Telangana note.
‘Creation of a new state of Telangana with 10 districts as members and Hyderabad as a capital by bifurcating existing state of Andhra Pradesh is approved by the Cabinet committee, while Hyderabad will remain as joint capital for 10 years for both states’, said Shinde.
Reports have that Seemandhra ministers Kavuri Sambasiva Rao and Pallam Raju have strictly opposed the Telangana note as it is quite insulting and uncaring for the feelings of Seemandhra people.
‘Irrespective of the protests put up by Seemandhra people from last 62 days against the bifurcation decision made by Congress working committee, it is quite disgusting that Congress government’s cabinet committee has approved the formation of Telangana’, said TDP leader Payyavula Kesav.
