BJP leader demands cabinet meeting in 3 days
Hyderabad: Taking credit for itself over Telangana, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded the UPA government to ‘walk the talk’ by sending formal Cabinet proposal to President within three days. At a press conference at party office, the BJP national spokesperson, Prakash Javadekar has asked the UPA to hold special cabinet meeting and pass resolution over Telangana, so that the process of Telangana picks up pace. He believes that the Law Ministry has the draft of the Bill,the only thing that remains is a Cabinet meeting.
Javadekar, who attended the State office-bearers’ meeting, here said that the meeting focused on the issue concluded that there should not be further delay over Telangana. According to him, as people were anxious awaiting the formalities to be completed, there were different voices heard amongst the Central leadership. “Digvijay Singh says it would be three months. While Azad assures that process will be concluded in five months and Shinde concludes that it would be six-months. Whom should we believe ?”, he questioned.
The BJP leader pointed out that this was the desperate move on the part of the Congress, as it would have been washed out if the decision was not taken at this juncture. “The decision was not out of conviction, but compulsion”, he felt.
He held that besides fight and sacrifice of the people of the region, it was the continuous pressure maintained by the BJP at national in parliament and outside, which made the Congress realise the issue. “It was out of fear, after we promised that within 100 days after coming to power, the Telangana will be a reality”, the leader held. Demanding a ‘blue print’ over the new capital of the ‘Andhra Pradesh’, Javadekar sought the Central government to announce a special package for the Rayalaseema, whose districts were underdeveloped similar to that of Telangana districts.
Responding to questions, he blamed the Congress for torching of party offices in the Seemandhra by miscreants. He held that the Congress want to take credit at both regions. Interestingly, the leader also blamed for lack of ‘respect’, for three States formed during NDA rein, which failed to get yearly package from the Centre as committed before the their formation. “We were in power for only 3 years after they were formed”, says Javadekar.
