In a significant development, the Union Cabinet on Thursday approved the formation of Telangana as a separate state by bifurcating the state of Andhra Pradesh.
The Union Cabinet will on Thursday hold discussion on the much-debated Lokpal Bill, which seeks to create an anti-corruption watchdog, before it comes up for discussion and passage in the Rajya Sabha.
Parliamentary Standing Committee is scheduled to meet today evening to chalk out a future strategy on the Lokpal Bill.
