Telangana decision should have been taken earlier: BJP

New Delhi, Oct 3 (IANS) The BJP Thursday said that the cabinet decision on formation of Telangana should have been taken earlier.

Reacting to the cabinet decision, Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said the party had been supporting creation of separate state of Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.

"The way Congress works, nobody sure when the bill (for formation of separate state) will come," he said.

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters Thursday that the cabinet had cleared the formation of Telangana as a separate state.

Javadekar had earlier in the day accused the United Progressive Alliance government of "failing to create a separate state of Telangana peacefully."

He said the Congress has "created a chaotic situation" and "divided the people (of Andhra Pradesh)" while National Democratic Alliance government had created separate states of Jharkhand, Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh in an amicable manner.
