Congress core group to discuss Telangana, all-party meet possible

An all-party meeting could be called soon to discuss the Telangana issue as Congress is close to formulating a final view over the separate statehood demand, which will be discussed at the Congress core group meeting on Friday.

There are indications that a meeting of the Congress working committee (CWC) as planned earlier may take a few more days as the party veers round to the view that a decision on Telangana is a ‘collective responsibility’ and not concerning one individual party.

Party sources said that an all-party meeting could be called on the issue.There is also a talk about setting up of second state reorganisation committee.

The core group chaired by Congress president Sonia Gandhi and prime minister Manmohan Singh is meeting this evening to discuss Telangana as well as other issues.

Amid hectic parleys on Telangana, home minister Sushilkumar Shinde had yesterday said a decision ‘this way or that way’ on the statehood demand will be taken soon.

He was responding to a question on the possibility of any government announcement on the demand for Telangana before the Monsoon session of Parliament.
