Crucial meeting of Congress on Telangana today

New Delhi: A crucial meeting of Congress Core Group on Friday will discuss the Telangana issue with both options open as a decision cannot be postponed anymore, senior party leader Digvijay Singh said Thursday.

“I cannot say anything on this. This has to be decided by Government of India in consultation with UPA partners. As this will also need amendment to the Constitution, we may have to take Opposition parties also on board,” Singh said when asked whether a decision has been taken in favour of creation of a separate Telangana.

Asked about reports that he had promised some ‘sweet news’ for Telangana people, the senior Congress leader said he had promised only a decision assuring there would be no ambiguity.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and senior cabinet ministers and leaders form part of the Core Group. The AICC general secretary, who had submitted a report in this regard to Gandhi, refrained from commenting on the contents and the plus and minus points of creation of Telangana and maintaining a united Andhra Pradesh.
