New Delhi, Jan 5: The all-party meeting on Telangana convened by Centre in New Delhi on Tuesday, Jan 5, ended inconclusively after parties failed to take any decision on the issue
After the meeting, Chidambaram said, "Government of India will act on the sense of the Telangana meeting within a reasonable timeframe."
"It was clear at the meeting that political parties were divided on the issue. We will take these views to the Prime Minister and senior members of the Government and then we will formulate the further course of action," he added.
"We have expressed our views at the meeting and they have been noted by the Central government," said a joint statement, signed by leaders, issued at the end of the meeting.
"Meanwhile, it is our earnest appeal that peace, harmony and law and order should be maintained in the state," the joint statement said.
"No decision was taken at the meeting. We are waiting for the final response," TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao told reporters.
Praja Rajyam chief Chiranjeevi said he had made clear his party's stand that it stood for a united Andhra Pradesh.
"It is only the beginning of the process," he said without elaborating.
