The Telangana tangle has reached the climax episode and with the bill getting placed in Lok Sabha tomorrow all eyes are on the Seemandhra MPs and Union Ministers. So far no one of Seemandhra region leaders compromised with Congress high command and few MPs have threatened to take bold steps if Congress decides to go ahead with its plans.
Anakapalli MP Sabbam Hari made sensational statements that he would burn himself in the Lok Sabha during the time of tabling the Telangana Bill and also claimed that two more MPs would do the same. While Rayapati Sambasiva Rao has said unexpected things may happen if T-bill is tabled. With the Congress expelling the six MPs who gave no confidence motion, MPs got more freedom to protest in the Lok Sabha. Well nobody has a clear idea of what will happen tomorrow but surely one can say that things might slip out of situation.
Like the MPs, Seemandhra Central ministers for the first time protested in Lok Sabha today causing interruption to the Railway budget. KS Rao who has been in the party over four decades said that he would quit to his ministry post but would remain the Congress men while Tourism minister Chiranjeevi has requested the Congress high command to re-think its decision on the creation of Telangana. Another Minister Daggubati Purandeshwari has said she would quit the post and to the Congress party if Congress is likely to table the Telangana bill. Pallam Raju too expressed his displeasure that Center did not consider their recommendations and may vote against the Telangana bill.
CM Kiran to resign
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy is likely to resign tomorrow and reports say that he say already sent this resignation to AP Governor ESL Narasimhan. As CM Kiran challenged the Center if the same Bill sent to AP Assembly is placed in the Parliament that he would resign, CM Kiran seems to be firm on the decision. Followed by more than 60 MLAs and State ministers are expected to resign to create a political crisis in the state. CM Kiran has been defying the bifurcation since beginning and is likely establish a new party after resignation.
Overall developments in the Delhi and Andhra Pradesh seems to be out of the hand and Congress may pay huge price for going ahead with the bifurcation process. Meanwhile BJP is also concerned about the Seemandhra demands and said it would support the Telangana bill only when the concerns of the Seemandhra people are cleared. With no clue whats going to happen tomorrow, the coming 24 hours are going to be very crucial.
