Final GoM meet on Telangana-bill today
New Delhi, Dec 4: GoM will hold its final meeting on Telangana draft on Wednesday, informed sources. The report is likely to be submitted to Union cabinet on Thursday.

The GoM headed by Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde met on Tuesday but the meeting remained inconclusive as the members could not agree on certain subjects. Shinde said they would meet again on Wednesday.

Ministers A.K. Antony, P. Chidambaram, Veerappa Moily, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Jairam Ramesh and Narayanaswamy besides Shinde attended the GoM meeting.

Sources said GoM has decided to recommend formation of Rayala-Telangana state by merging two of the four districts of Rayalaseema with Telangana, the region which comprises 10 districts including Hyderabad.

While many leaders have been demanding Union Territory status to Hyderabad, the GoM reportedly hasn't been able to reach on a consensus regarding the Tech city.

Meanwhile, a meeting of Congress MPs from Telangana held at central minister S. Jaipal Reddy's residence in Delhi on Tuesday night decided that the Rayala-Telangana idea is not acceptable to them. 

The law ministry has reportedly prepared a draft bill for Telangana. The bill is being examined by a team of legal experts to plug the loopholes. The draft bill is likely to be given final shape in the light of GoM recommendations.
