Hyderabad: Amid speculations of imposition of President Rule or putting in place a new government, The Union Cabinet is expected to take a final call on Friday. The Union Cabinet is expected to discuss and take a final decision in this regard today as the AICC is in a hurry to settle the issue.
Despite passing the Telangana bill in Parliament the Congress wants the TRS to merge into it and then decide on President’s assent and Gazette to be published to accord statehood to Telangana, sources said. For obvious reasons of nullifying the TDP and YCP in 2014 general elections, the Congress party wants to repair itself by having truck with likeminded parties.
Interestingly, in a related development TRS Chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has preponed a party meeting and gone into a huddle with his party senior leaders. He is said to have taken their opinion on merger. Though many leaders of the TRS are reluctant to merge with the Congress, as it achieved the Telangana state after a dozen above years of movement, it is for KCR to decide. AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh stated that KCR has hinted at the merger, the latter stated that the process is yet to begin.
It is learnt that TRS is unhappy with the recent developments in the state. TRS is furious with Congress for welcoming their Manchiryal MLA Aravind Reddy and expelled MP Vijayashanti into Congress. Jairam Ramesh comments on TRS and his invitation to TJAC leaders into the party also widening the gap between TRS and Congress.
