Telangana bill tabled in Rajya Sabha

Sushilkumar-ShindeNew Delhi, Feb 20 : Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Thursday tabled the Telangana statehood bill in the Rajya Sabha amidst protests.

Some members opposed to the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh walked towards Shinde in an effort to interrupt him, but were stopped by MPs from the Congress and those favouring a separate Telangana state.

Members from the Trinamool Congress, Janata Dal (U) and Shiv Sena described the tabling of the bill as unconstitutional. (IANS)
