Decision on Telangana After Consensus: PM

On board Air India One, Nov 13 (IANS): Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Saturday said a decision on the festering Telangana issue will be taken after evolving a consensus so that it does not create trouble in other regions.

"Telangana is a complicated matter. We want consensus where all shades of opinion will feel what is best," Manmohan Singh told reporters while returning from a four-day visit to the Maldives.

"We cannot solve Telangana by agreeing to Telangana and there is disturbances and unrest in other parts," he said.

"As for an appropriate solution, we will work to find a practical ways and means so that all the stakeholders can agree to accept a solution," he said.

The issue of carving a separate Telangana state continues to remain a fractious issue.

The Supreme Court Friday rejected a plea to restrain centre from carving out a separate Telangana state saying it was "too premature," but at the same time sought response from the Andhra Pradesh government and Telangana Rashtra Samiti over concerns about normal life being paralysed due to the protracted agitation.
