New Delhi: Senior BJP leader LK Advani
on Thursday held consultations with the Leader of the Lok Sabha
Pranab Mukherjee over Telangana issue which rocked the Parliament.

Advani met Mukherjee in the Lok Sabha soon after the
House adjourned for the day and the two leaders were seen
confabulating over the matter.

The BJP veteran, who also talked to Parliamentary
Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, is making efforts for
some time being set aside in the day`s business for a debate
on the Telangana issue.

He also complained that the government was unable to
rein in its own Congress members from Andhra Pradesh who are
demanding formation of Telangana.

In the Lok Sabha, Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj
wanted government to act on the Telangana issue.

"Why is this drama being enacted? We want the government
to commit that the Telangana Bill will be brought in the
current session," Swaraj said.

TRS member Vijayashanti, who squatted in the Well of the
Lok Sabha along with party chief K Chandrashekhar Rao,
requested Mukherjee to make a statement on the Telangana
issue.
