The TRS demands that the Centre introduce a bill in the Budget Session of Parliament for the formation of separate Telangana, irrespective of the recommendations of the Srikrishna committee.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) today rejected a fresh appeal from the Union Home Minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, to attend the meeting of political parties convened in Delhi tomorrow to discuss the Srikrishna committee report on Telangana, saying he did not reply to its objections.

“Chidambaram has sent a second letter. He did not answer our objections that one party should not give divergent views.

In the letter, he (Chidamabaram) said five parties had expressed a single opinion in a similar meeting held in January last year. But the moot point is that three parties gave divergent views,” TRS sources said.

Mr Chidambaram had invited the eight recognised political parties from Andhra Pradesh for a meeting in Delhi tomorrow to discuss the Srikrishna Committee report but the TRS decided to boycott the meeting.

“The Centre is deliberately encouraging the parties to give divergent views by inviting two representatives from each party,” the sources said.
