Mr Ramesh said the Chairman of the UPA Sub-Committee on Telangana, Pranab Mukherjee, had written letters to all the political parties to air their views.

He said it is not easy to take a decision like Jharkhand, Chattisgarh and Uttaranchal, as implications have to be studied and all its entity be examined thoroughly.

Mr Ramesh said seperate Telangana State was not a ''burning issue'' of the day as the centre had also to pay attention on the naxalities and land dispute issues.
