Telangana Bill- Will the drama end happily?
Since mid December 2013 Legislators talked about the deficiencies in the AP State Reorganisation Bill-2013, that the Central Government has crossed all limits in sending an in comprehensive one to the Assembly in violation of federal spirit. Still debate commenced and the extension was also sought and awarded to further debate and send it early.

It was not fair on the part of the Andhra Chief Minister belatedly speaking on the legitimacy of the Bill, whether its a legislation or draft? Revealing the Union Home Ministry's communication saying that it was only a draft Bill and the President should refer the original bill and not the draft as committed by the Home Ministry. He further added the Central Government has not given details of the statement of objects and reasons, how it would address concerns of two States after division.

It may be a calculated decision by the Chief Minister and made his move for rejection of the Bill. But, the error involving Constitutional point which given scope for seeking rejection of the legislation proves that, the Congress and the Union Government was and is not sincere in granting statehood to Telangana. CWC resolution turned out to be mere eye wash.

The leaders of the Congress, TRS or others were constantly taunting the Telugu Desam on its stand on equitable justice for both regions. The shortcomings galore has proven that, Telugu Desam did the right thing and party was targeted unnecessarily.

In comprehensive Bill and reluctance of Union Home Ministry to furnish requisite information is like twisting someone's arm, which made the Chief Minister to point finger at his party's High Command on the issue. The elections to the Elders House has become obstacle to the Congress High Command to initiate disciplinary action against the defiant members. The present situation has become handy to the Chief Minister to hear his say. How far will he be successful one has to wait and watch.

Sending a draft Bill just to express the views during the last session of the present term of Assembly and not listing it among the bills to be tabled before the Parliament in the coming session and Union Home Ministry's stating it was immaterial if the AP Assembly rejected or approved the Bill as the Centre could go ahead with its plan to introduce in the Parliament can be termed as Anarchic.

'Those in office must eliminate the trust deficit between them and the people. Those in politics should understand that every election come with a warning sign: perform or perish'. These were the words said by the President of India, which should be taken into account by the UPA and if the Centre is sincere should immediately send the complete information in all respects, so that the Assembly could give its positive views and may be after necessary amendments the Parliament will pass it in the coming session.

Every one in AP hope that, there will not be any dilatory tactics on the issue by the Centre and unrest will be made to settle amicably.
