approves-Telangana-BillThe Union cabinet has cleared the bill for creation of a separate state of Telangana. According to CNN IBN, the draft Bill was cleared by the Union Cabinet today evening.

The Bill mentions that Hyderabad will be the joint capital for Seemandhra and Telangana. It will not be a Union Territory, as was being speculated. The governor has been put in charge of law and order of Hyderabad.

Hyderabad will be the joint capital for Telangana and Seemandhra. There is no major change in the original Telangana draft. The demand of Seemandhra leaders to make Hyderabad a Union Territory has been rejected.

The Bill, which was rejected in the Andhra Pradesh assembly, will now be moved in Lok Sabha.

Sources said that Congress might ask Andhra CM Kiran Reddy, who has been in constant protest, to resign.
