Blessed is the generation that is born in free Telangana, but any one witnessing today’s page turn in the history of Telangana can thank the God for letting him witness this minute, this hour and the day, rest of his entire life!
Entire Telangana populace is going to witness the discussion on the T Bill in Lok Sabha today. To begin any time after 12 noon, the discussion might be started by an address by UPA Chairman Smt. Sonia Gandhi herself. Since a discussion is announced, that means the tabling of the Bill is understood to have happened. The BJP contention with the tabling of the Bill can now be understood to be resolved.
The main opposition party, BJP is said to have proposed several amendments to the Bill. The party asked for financial packages and assurances on projects within the Bill. The request by all Seemandhra leaders for making Hyderabad a UT, or for Rayala Telangana as a last resort are summarily rejected by Congress Working President Rahul Gandhi yesterday. The ruling party’s decision on the sharing of Hyderabad revenue, tax exemptions to Seemandhra etc. are not clear as yet. T BJP leaders are confident that all propaganda against BJP with regard to its stand on Telangana will be cleared once and for all today. “Sushma Swaraj is scheduled to speak on the Bill and she will be hailed again as the daughter of Telangana,” said BJP leader Vidya Sagar Rao.
The request of suspended MPs to be allowed inside the House are rejected by the speaker.
