February 12, 2014 - New Delhi
The Congress led-UPA government plans to present the AP State Reorganization Bill 2013 in Parliament on Thursday subject to a final call.
Dispute the vociferous protests by the Seemandhra MPs and Union Ministers in Lok Sabha, the government appears to go ahead with it's decision. The Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at a luncheon meeting with the BJP senior leader on Wednesday sought their support for passage of the Bill.
The main opposition party had laid down some conditions including that the House should be in order and that the concerns of the people of Telangana and Seemandhra should be addressed even as it indicated that it planned to bring in some amendments, primarily related to the interests of Seemandhra. It also put forth 32 amendments for the Bill.
It may be recalled the Seemandhra MPs have been obstructing the proceedings of the House since February 5 the day of the Lok Sabha began and not even transacted even a single day.
It a matter of wait and watch the developments on Thursday when the Bill is introduced in the Parliament.
