CWC decision on Telangana likely tomorrow

The high-level meetings are being called ahead of the Monsoon session of Parliament beginning August 5, when a bill relating to formation of Telangana is required to be passed if a decision is taken

Taking a step forward, the Working Committee (CWC) tomorrow may give a go-ahead to the creation of state, a decision that could trigger protests from within the party amidst reported threat of resignation by Chief Minister Kirankumar Reddy.

The CWC, the highest policy-making body of the Congress, is scheduled to meet at 1730 hours. Just before that the party, which is said to have made up its mind on the division of Andhra Pradesh, will consult allies on the ticklish issue.

The high-level meetings are being called ahead of the Monsoon session of beginning August 5, when a bill relating to formation of Telangana is required to be passed if a decision is taken.

General Secretary in-charge of Digvijay Singh, who has been holding discussions with the state leaders, said a decision has to be taken in "national interest". He did not elaborate.

The Congress leadership has been having discussions on the issue with the state leaders and at the central level and has given enough indications of going in favour of Telangana.

The issues that appear to be dogging them are whether Telangana should consist of just 10 districts of the region or should include a couple of districts from Rayalaseema. Also, the issue of Hyderabad -- to be capital of Telangana or to be a joint capital -- has to be resolved.

One more issue could be whether to make Hyderabad a Union Territory for some years to prevent immediate problems.

Amidst these moves, Andhra Chief Minister, who hails from Rayalaseema region, is said to be strongly opposed to the division of the state and has made it clear to the leadership that he would not be a party to such a move.

Congress leaders from Andhra and Rayalaseema regions today held closed-door meetings with Kirankumar Reddy who is said to be toying with the idea of quitting the post if a decision is taken to split the state.
