New Delhi: The main Opposition BJP on Monday accused the UPA Government of betraying people fighting for the Telangana.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said, "It is complete betrayal of the Telangana cause and people. The Congress government is not ready to give Telangana. There is complete policy paralysis. I assure of full NDA support in the Parliament on the issue."

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has threatened to intensify its stir for a separate state a day after Centre deferred its own January 28 deadline.

So far, 33 Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Praja Rajyam Party and Independent lawmakers hailing from the Telangana region have resigned from the Parliament and the Andhra State Assembly.

Notably, on Sunday, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde made it clear that a decision on the contentious Telangana statehood demand will be delayed further, as the government needed more time to arrive at a final decision on the issue. The Union Home Minister had set a one-month deadline for the bifurcation the state in December when he had held meeting with representatives from the region.
