Hyderabad, Feb 5: Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been going through a tough phase. She has been dealing with several difficult different political situations but everything seems to have been going out of her control. Andhra Pradesh bifurcation decision seems to be one among them.

Now, one of the most popular leader -- YSR Congress chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is known as Jagan, once again threatened Congress to resume state-wide protest if it moves forward with current Telangana bill.

Writing a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, Jagan wrote, It is the firm view of our party that the Telangana Bill should not be tabled in Parliament after it was rejected by the state Assembly."

We have opposed the Bill and bifurcation of the state, will continue to do so

"We have opposed the Bill and bifurcation of the state at many forums and will continue to do so in Parliament as we feel the division is undemocratic," he added.

Jagan earlier had indefinite fast demanding cancellation of the decision to divide Andhra Pradesh. The popular leader of the state drew massive support while protesting against Congress. Sonia Gandhi and her party once again may face another trouble ahead of the Lok Sabha election if Jagan starts his agitation once again.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the government is ready to discuss any issue that members may raise and hoped the crucial Telangana bill would be passed even as the Opposition asked the ruling party not to give "sermons".

"Of course, there is the vital issue of Telangana. We will be bringing the bill before Parliament," Singh told reporters after an all-party meeting convened by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to ensure smooth functioning of the House.

"I sincerely hope that after a long debate spreading over many years, the House will in its wisdom will be able to transact the business and pass the bill," he added.

Noting that there are many important legislations pending including anti-corruption measures, Women's Reservation Bill and Communal Violence Bill, Singh said, "I sincerely hope that Parliament in its wisdom will transact the essential business which is the primary concern of any legislature in the Parliamentary democracy."

He said there will be an opportunity for Parliament, even on the vote on account, to discuss the issues which are agitating the MPs.
