New Delhi: Reacting to the Congress Working Committee’s decision to form a separate state of Telangana, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that the step is a victory of the people of the region.
Addressing reporters here, BJP leader Prakash Javadekar said, “It has been a long battle. It’s a victory of the people of Telangana.”
“Our fight will continue till the Telangana state is formed,” Javadekar said.
Hitting out at the Congress, the BJP spokesperson said that the Congress had to bow down to the demands of the people. “Congress had to deliver resolution because of public pressure,” Javadekar said.
Javadekar said his party has consistently backed the decision to form a separate Telangana and was ready to back a bill on separate statehood if the government brings it in the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
"We will see carefully (if) the intention is to backstab or to give Telangana. We will watch till Telangana is formed," he said.
