Accusing Congress of creating hurdles in the creation of Telangana statehood, senior BJP leader Bandaru Dattatraya on Sunday alleged that the ruling party was creating confusion over Telangana to block the T-bill in Parliament and put the blame on BJP, for poll gain.

Speaking to reporters here, Dattatrya, while reiterating BJP’s commitment to T statehood said though the BJP had time and again clarified its stand on Telangana, the Cong in an attempt to discredit it, is spreading rumours that the BJP is deviating from its stand.

“They do not want to give Telangana and are trying to escape by blaming us. Union minister Kamalnath was saying that the BJP was backtracking on its stand on Telangana, but the truth is that Congress itself is trying to block the T-bill,” he alleged.

The drama over the T-bill is being enacted by Congress high command and Kiran Reddy was following instructions, he alleged.
