Lok Sabha passes Telangana Bill; people failed to witness the historic moment as live broadcast of the LSTV was stopped
The long struggle of Telangana people has finally came to an end, with Lok Sabha passing the Telangana Bill via voice vote. The bill was passed amidst protest, as many as 40 MPs protested in the well of the house against the decision.

Moreover, the Lok Sabha speaker had also ordered to curtail the live telecast of the proceedings by the Lok Sabha during the time the Bill was discussed. The live telecast of the Lok Sabha was stopped for the first time, while the house took up Telangana bill for discussion.

The bill was presented by the Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, and was adjourned twice, because of disturbances like few members opposing the bifurcation of the state, came near the podium. Some members also held placards against the bifurcation of the state.

YSR Congress Chief Jaganmohan Reddy while talking to media called it a black day in the history of Indian democracy, and has declared bandh in the state. 

As reported by Firstpost, he said, “TV channels were shut off, Lok Sabha live telecast was cut off. Doors were closed, people who were to represent the interests of Seemandhra were suspended. The issue was taken up against the will of the assembly, against the will of the people of Andhra Pradesh. Today we have seen that the bill was passed undemocratically.”

Meanwhile celebrations have started in Telangana region. People are seen dancing, singing in joy.
