Sonia Gandhi
New Delhi, Sept 25: Congress President Sonia Gandhi discussed FDI in retail and other crisis which UPA government has been facing currently but snubbed discussion on Telangana row in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting at her residence in Delhi on Tuesday, Sept 25.

Despite Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chadrashekhar Rao's continuous campaign in the national capital demanding an immediate decision on forming a separate Telangana state, Mrs Gandhi did not raise the issue before the members of CWC.

Janardhan Dwivedi, Congress spokesperson on Tuesday made it clear that Telangana issue did not figure in the meet. Earlier, sources had informed that Congress may merge with TRS but Mrs Gandhi's reaction ignited questions regarding the same.

According to sources, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's economic reforms largely dominated the meeting. Mrs Gandhi told at the meet that there was no threat to the government and that it is stable.

The CWC, at the meeting, strongly endorsed Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail and other economic policies announced by the Centre recently.

Defending UPA's recent economic decisions, including an increase in diesel price and cap on subsidised LPG cylinders and bringing FDI in retail and aviation, CWC members feel that all the decisions are necessary to protect the country from economic recession.
