Dismissing speculation that the T-bill might be put in cold storage because of advancing general elections, AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh said on Tuesday that there was no need for anyone to doubt the commitment of the Congress party in delivering Telangana state.

“The Congress is committed to creating Telangana state. We never mix politics with governance. It was a commitment made to the people. When we included it in the election manifesto, Andhra leaders also knew it,” Digvijaya Singh told reporters in Delhi, stirring the hopes of T-protagonists that the Congress has not got cold feet over Telangana statehood decause of the damage to the party in Seemandhra.

Digvijaya Singh advised Seemandhra legislators to discuss the Bill in the Assembly instead of rushing to the President with affidavits against bifurcation. “If they want to give affidavits to the President, it is okay with me. The issue is between the President and the Assembly,” Digvijaya Singh said.

The Congress state affairs incharge played cagey, as he has always been, over the question of chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s defiance of the party high command. Asked for his reaction to Kiran Reddy’s comment that the last ball is yet to be bowled, Digvijaya Singh said: “He is a cricket player. He knows when the last ball is and when it would be bowled.” He asked the mediapersons to approach Kiran Reddy, when they asked him about the former’s plan to form a political party.
