With the Monsoon Session of Parliament nearing its end, the Centre seems to be moving forward to put the Telangana process on the fast track.

Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on  Monday dropped hints in this regard, saying that the Home Ministry was hoping to present a Cabinet note for initiating the process of carving a Telangana state in the next 20 days.

“We are preparing a note to pass a resolution in the Cabinet to accord statehood to Telangana. As soon as we finalise the note, the note will be sent to  the law ministry for legal vetting. I am confident that the note will be presented  before the Cabinet within 20 days,” he told  mediapersons in Delhi on Monday. Despite the ongoing 34-day-long agitation in Seemandhra against the bifurcation of  AP, the Centre seems to be firm on completing the T-process at the earliest.

Sources in the Union Home Ministry disclosed that T-note preparation has been going on at a rapid pace but under a veil of secrecy.

After Cabinet approval for Telangana, a Group of Ministers (GoM) will be set up to look into the issues arising out of the bifurcation of AP.
