Congress disapproves pro-Telangana MPs conduct

New Delhi: The Congress on Monday disapproved of the conduct of its pro-Telangana MPs who raised slogans in support of the statehood demand during the Presidential address.
The party maintained that the non-raising of the issue in the President's address to the Joint sitting of both Houses of Parliament "does not mean that the issue is not being taken seriously".
"UPA is committed to finding a solution," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.
President Pratibha Patil's 45-minute address to the joint sitting of both Houses went on smoothly except towards the end when some Congress members from Andhra Pradesh rose from their seats, displayed pro-Telangana banners and shouted "Jai Telangana" and "We want Telangana".
"There is a time and place for everything. This applies to everybody. Everyone has to maintain discipline and decorum during the President's address," Singhvi said.
At the same time, he also sought to mollify the pro-Telangana members by noting that the party was aware of the emotions on the issue.
"The process has already started over Telangana. This is a very dignified inaugural session and all issues cannot be raised. Non-raising of the issue does not mean the issue is not being taken seriously. UPA is committed to finding a solution," he said.
