No rethink on Telangana, says govt


New Delhi: Unfazed by protests, the Union government on Tuesday ruled out any rethink on the decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

"There cannot be a rethink on the issue. A decision has already been taken by the Cabinet," said Cabinet Secretary Ajit Kumar Seth.

Seth's remarks came on a day when government reorganised the Group of Ministers (GoM) panel for working out modalities of creation of the new Telangana state for which a decision was taken on October 3.

Last week, the Cabinet had decided to go ahead with the decision to create a separate Telangana state. After the decision, the protesters intensified their agitation, crippling normal life in the Seemandhra region.

YSR Congress Party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy and Telugu Desam Party supremo N Chandrababu Naidu have gone on fast over the decision.

Commenting on the ongoing agitation in Seemandhra region, Seth said, "Normalacy shall be restored in the region."
