New Delhi, Dec 10: Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday, Dec 10, said the demand for a separate Telangana state showed how pople feel neglected despite speaking same language.
Speaking to reporters, Chidambaram said, "Last night (Wednesday) the government announced initiating the process of formation of Telangana. The region is a good example of how people feel neglected despite speaking same language."
When asked about the possible impact of state formation, he said, "The US has one-third of our population still it has 50 states."
Noting TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao's deteriorating health condition, who had been on a fast-unto-death for 11 days, the central government on late Wednesday, Dec 9, pledged to form a separate Telangana state.
