Congress to propose 3 options on Telangana?
The Congress high command is believed to be considering to propose three options as a possible solution to the separate Telangana issue. According to sources, the first option is to announce a time-bound agenda for the formation of Telangana state, the second is to keep status oh Hyderabad open and the third is to constitute a 2nd State Reorganis-ation Commission. With the monsoon session of the Parliament to begin on August 1, the Congress wants to announce the three options and invite all the parties concerned for further discussions. Referring to the Telangana issue at the regular AICC briefing, the party spokesman, Abhishek Singhvi, said that the only option is balance, patience and not queering the pitch by provocative statements either from the Congress party or from the media fraternity. Singhvi said that the Congress high command is aware of the surcharged atmosphere and understands the emotions.
It is expected that the MPs, MLAs and MLCs from Telangana region would withdraw their resignations once the 3 options are announced and be ready for consultations on the proposals.
