After Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and AICC general secretary in charge of state affairs Ghulam Nabi Azad, it is the turn of Union information and broadcasting minister Manish Tewari now to say that the Centre needs more time to undo the T-tangle.

“The Centre, as well as the Congress, has understood the problem and its ramifications. We also understand the sentiments of Telangana people. But there is a need for everybody to be patient as the Centre needs some more time to resolve the issue,” he said.

Tewari, who is also the AICC spokesman, called upon leaders of the state to be patient on the issue of state bifurcation as the Congress high command as well as the Centre were pursuing the issue.

The Union minister, who came to Hyderabad on Saturday on a two-day visit, addressed the media at the residence of senior Congress leader T Subbirami Reddy here.

Tewari said, “Telangana is a sensitive issue and should be resolved in an amicable manner. The Centre is fully aware of the sentiments attached to the issue and already initiated the process to resolve it. It will soon come out with a decision on the issue.”
