New Delhi: Alleging that Congress lacks
the political will to carve out a separate Telangana, BJP on Sunday demanded that the full content of the Srikrishna
Committee report on formation of the state be made public.
After a meeting of Joint Action Committee (JAC) on
Telangana here, BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitaraman -- who
attended the meeting -- questioned why there was secrecy about
the Srikrishna Committee report.
"Why is there so much secrecy about chapter eight of
the report. The full report should be released," she said.
She maintained that the Committee did not have the
mandate to make the suggestions it has reportedly made in
"A political decision has to be taken on this issue.
BJP has always stood for the formation of Telangana. Congress
party does not have the political will to form Telangana," the
party spokesperson said.
The JAC on Telangana is constituted by four parties
namely BJP, TRS, CPI and the Congress.
Sitaraman said during meetings Congress has either
staged a walkout or disrupted proceedings.
