Reports said that the Congress party’s core committee came to the conclusion that conceding Telangana would not be possible and preferred package. The package would include employment, quota for political posts, national status to Pranahita and Chevella projects and separate fund for the backward districts of Telangana. While legality would be provided to some of the commitments, there would be clear assurance on the others. It is being said that Rahul Gandhi has been seriously concentrating about the problem and was keen on resolving it at the earliest.
However, both the Congress and non-Congress leaders of Telangana are unlikely to accept package or any other solution to the Telangana tangle. Even the Congress ministers who met recently made it clear that nothing short of Telangana would satisfy them.
