New Delhi, Dec 23: The much-awaited decision of the Centre on the ticklish Telangana issue brought cheers neither to the Telangana camp nor the pro-United Andhra camp. Instead, the Centre Called for restraint on the part of all contenders on the controversial T-issue, till a consensus is arrived at. The issue is again back to square one with the Centre making no headway on the separate statehood for Telangana.The core committee which had a lengthy meeting on Wednesday made it clear that a separate Telangana is possible only if all the political parties come to a common understanding.
Hence, there is persistent effort to thrash out a consensus, it assured.The core committee expressed its inability to come to any clear cut decision because some parties which earlier supported the cause of Telangana have gone back on their stand and this issue has put the core committee in a delicate situation. As some parties have gone back on their stand, the situation is not congenial to pass a resolution in the House on Telangana issue, the core committee felt.
All the political parties should once again sit together and sort out the contentious issue, the core committee observed.We did not deviate from the statement made by Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram earlier, but we only urge them to come to an understanding as some the political parties have gone back on their decision, the core committee spokesman explained.The core committee felt that normalcy in the state is of prime importance at the moment as it will take time for other parties to come to an understanding.
