New Delhi: Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Saturday refused to specify a time-frame for a solution to impasse over demand for a separate state for Telangana, saying there was no plan to convene an all-party meeting on the issue.
Talking to mediapersons here, Shinde said discussions have been held in an all-party meeting earlier and informal discussions keep taking place.
Answering queries about a solution on the demand for a separate state of Telangana, he said it can "happen before the parliament session (winter session which starts Nov 22) or after that."
Asked about all-party meeting, he said it will be called if needed.
"I don`t think there will be all-party meeting," he said.
