No change in our stand on Telangana: TDP



Hyderabad: The Telangana Telugu Desam Forum has said the letter written to the committee headed by Union Minister Pranab Mukherjee remains the TDP's official stand on the statehood issue.

"What has been stated in the letter to Pranab Mukherjee, then External Affairs Minister, still remains the TDP's official stand on Telangana statehood issue. There is no change in that stand," TTDF Convenor Errabilli Dayakar Rao said on Friday.

Reacting to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's reply to Lok Sabha on the calling attention motion on Telangana today, Rao said the main Opposition party's stand on the statehood has been stated many a time.

"If the Government of India tables a Bill in Parliament for creation of Telangana state, we will get all the six TDP MPs to vote for it," he added.
