No match-fixing with Cong on Telangana Bill: BJP
New Delhi: BJP on Thursday rejected allegations there was a "match fixing" between it and Congress for the passage of Telangana Bill in parliament and hit back at the Left and Trinamool Congress saying till recently they were "partners in corruption" of UPA government.
"They say there was a match fixing as if BJP was part of UPA government. The Left was an ally in UPA I and TMC was till recently a part of UPA. They were the partners in corruption," BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters here after the passage of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganistion bill.
He said BJP had flagged certain issues, including a special package for Seemandhra region. "Government tried to satisfy us. There are certain shortcomings in the bill. But they will be recififed after BJP comes to power in the next two months."
TMC, which staged a protest in Rajya Sabha during the debate on the bill, said "the bill`s form and content as passed by the Lok Sabha was illegal."
"We had given a letter to the Rajya Sabha Chairman (Hamid Ansari) this morning mentioning our opposition," said TMC MP Derek O` Brien outside Parliament House.
Trinamool Congress is conerned about the fall out of the Telangana decision on Gorakhaland issue. The hilly region of West Bengal is seeking separate statehood for long.
Similarly in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena has been staunchly oppposed to any division of the state where demands for creation of Vidarbha are raised occassionally.
