The Central Government is trying to push the Telangana Bill without making any amendments. The Bigwigs are making all calculations with possible combinations and permutations to see that the Bill doesn’t need any amendments to any of the Articles in the Constitutions.
The problem is introduction of the Bills. If the Telangana Bill is combined with that of the required amendment then it will be a single Bill which can anyhow be pushed forward. But if two three Bills are to be introduced then a problem may arise in getting them passed in the Parliament. If one or more connected Bills are not passed then it may create legal hurdle. That is why the Government is trying to to pass either Telangana Bill without a need to amend an Article in the Constitution.
This information has come out from one of the Members of GoM when he was having a casual talk. He said that the Bill will reach the President before Parliament sessions will start on December 5th. And it will be up to the President to decide when it will be sent to the AP State Assembly.
It is further said that the GoM will meet at the residence of A.K.Antony today at 4.30 pm and the last meeting will be held at Home Minister’s office on Wednesday where the report will be finalized. The report of GoM may not reach the Cabinet by 28th.
Other points are,
Bhadrachalam Revenue Division will remain with Telangana. Article 371 may not be a hurdle as it was done in the case of Maharashtra and Gujarat and Assam and Manipur.
The final report will be aimed to satisfy all the regions- Andhra, Telangana and Rayalaseema.
Minister Jaipal Reddy announced after meeting Sonia Gandhi said that the amendments to any article is not required.
Bhadrachalam may not be big problem but Hyderabad, as per the talks of the leaders, is not yet clear after all these discussions.
