Telangana resolution ruled out: CM

Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy has firmly ruled out the introduction of a resolution on Telangana formation in the assembly.

Addressing a media conference in Hyderabad on Monday after the adjournment of the assembly, Kiran Kumar said the MLAs of the Seema Andhra region constituted majority in the assembly and there is no possibility of a T resolution being passed in the House.

“What is the use of introducing such a resolution in the assembly when there is no possibility of its being passed?” he asked.

The CM’s remarks come in the wake of the assembly being adjourned for tomorrow following a prolonged ruckus by the TRS members who have demanded a T resolution in the assembly.

The CM however said the Centre will soon take a decision on the issue and asked all stake holders involved to wait for the decision.

Govt can’t bear subsidy 

Kiran said the Government is not in a position to bear subsidy on cooking gas and defended the Centre’s decision to cap the subsidized cooking gas supply at six cylinders per year. “Six cylinders are enough for a family,” he said, adding he can’t force the Centre to revive its decision.

Speaking about the power crisis in the state, the CM said the situation will not improve unless and until water from the above catchment areas flows into reservoirs.
Ruling out official status to the Telangana Liberation Day, Kiran Kumar took umbrage to the remarks of Telangana JAC convener Prof. Kodanda Ram against Minister Sridhar Babu and warned him of legal action.

“Legal action will surely follow if any one crosses his limits,” he said, adding that no one is above law.

Asked about the resignation of Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao, he said he will take a decision after receiving a detailed explanation from him.
