On Telengana Issue


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on July 6, 2011.


THE political crisis in Andhra Pradesh with regard to the Telengana issue has deepened with the resignation of many MLAs and MPs belonging to the Telengana region. The inaction of the central government and the Congress leadership in resolving the issue is the main cause for the present impasse.


It is more than six months since the Justice Sri Krishna committee submitted its report to the central government. The home minister had convened a meeting of political parties from Andhra Pradesh soon after. But after that, the government has not taken any decision.


The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands that the government take a decision on the matter immediately.
