Will support the Telangana Bill in Parliament: BJP


bjp-support-to-telanganaAfter the Union Cabinet cleared the Telangana Bill, BJP today said it will support the bill in Parliament as it has not changed its stand on the new state’s formation.

There is no change in our stand or policies with regard to Telangana formation. We are a national party and the stand of our national leadership on the issue is one,” said BJP’s Andhra Pradesh chief G Krishna Reddy. The BJP leader said whenever this bill comes up in Parliament, his party will support it.

He, however, said, the BJP leaders from Andhra Pradesh will seek amendments to the bill to include an economic package along with water and other packages for Seemandhra region.
