Ranchi, Dec.15 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday blamed Congress party of being confused and acting in a haphazard manner over creation of Telangana State by not even taking its State unit into confidence before going ahead with such an important decision.
"BJP was always in favour of the Telangana state. But Congress seems to be very confused over the issue. When they decided to create Telangana they should have decided to take their own government in Andhra Pradesh in confidence," said Rajnath Singh during a press conference in Ranchi.
Rajnath Singh held the Congress party responsible for the imbroglio over the issue of Telangana and said that proper management of the state should be taken under consideration for apt functioning of any newly created state.
"There are several things which have to be kept in mind while carving out a new state such as the social aspect of it and the financial, geographical and political angles. If there is confusion on that part, it will be akin to opening the Pandora's Box," Rajnath Singh said.
Earlier, Rajnath Singh campaigned for the candidates of his party contesting in the final phase of the five-staged elections to the state legislature election to be held on December 23.
The regional party, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) had been spearheading a campaign for a separate Telangana state.
It had joined hands with Congress party in 2004 to fight regional and national polls, and the Central government had promised to consider its demand for a separate state.
However, TRS had to withdraw support from the Congress-led ruling coalition, saying that the progress on the issue was slow and blamed it of betrayal on the issue. (ANI)
