Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, announced in Lok Sabha that the government has convened a meeting of Andhra Pradesh political parties on December 28 to discuss Telangana issue.
This announcement came after boycotting a meeting called by party leaders, sulking Telangana Congress MPs decided to participate in the FDI vote in Lok Sabha after the government decided to convene an all-party meeting to discuss the contentious statehood issue.
The seven congress MPs , Ponnam Prabhakar, G Vivekanad, Rajaiah, M Jagganath, Rajgopal Reddy and Gutta Sukhender Reddy created an embarrassing situation for Congress high command on this issue. They have been openly speaking against the party and the government for not taking a decision on the Telangana issue, also decided to vote in favour of the government in Lok Sabha when the FDI issue is put to vote.
If every thing goes fine , TDP supports Telangana and YSRC does the same then 2013 will be a very Happy new year for the people of Telangana otherwise the same story might repeat in this region as it happened all these days with protests and suicides on daily basis . TDP chief Chandra Babu was always saying that his party is not against Telangana and YSRC kept its lips tight on this issue till now.
