Home Ministry has prepared the note for creation of Telangana state and it will be presented before the Union Cabinet once Congress President Sonia Gandhi returns from the US and it gets a "political clearance".

Following a directive from Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, the Ministry officials prepared the cabinet note for creation of the new state, to be carved out of Andhra Pradesh, as per the constitutional provisions. "We are ready with the Cabinet note but waiting for the political clearance," a senior official said, indicating that the nod is expected only after return of the Congress chief from the US.

Sonia Gandhi left for the United States on September 2 for a medical check-up and is expected to be back in about a week. The Home Ministry will send the note to the Law Ministry for vetting only after getting the political clearance. On Saturday, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had said his ministry was preparing the note to be presented before the Union Cabinet for creation of separate Telangana and it would be brought soon.
