Hyderabad, May 15 (UNI) Asserting that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance could alone create a separate Telangana state, party president Rajnath Singh today asked the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), an estranged ally of the Congress, to ponder over how it could realise statehood for Telangana without the BJP's support.
''The anti-Telangana face of the Congress has thoroughly been exposed, as four years after coming to power, the Congress-led UPA government is yet to find the appropriate time promised in its Common Minimum Programme for creation of separate Telangana state,'' Mr Singh claimed at a press conference here.
The TRS owed an explanation to the people how it could achieve Telangana without the support of the BJP, he underlined.
Although, the BJP had promised to support any move by the UPA regime to create Telangana state, the UPA never showed an inclination to bring the Telangana bill in Parliament, he recalled, adding ''I myself have expressed BJP's favourable opinion on the issue many times and on different platforms.'' Stating that ''the BJP is sincerely committed to create Telangana, he said ''I assure the country that the appropriate time to create Telangana will come only when the BJP-led NDA comes to power at the Centre.''
