"We have listed the Telangana Bill in Rajya Sabha and we would be attempting to get it passed. The question of amendments at this stage does not arise," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said.

The ongoing session, slated to conclude on Friday, is the last session of the 15th Lok Sabha.

Taking potshots at the BJP, Nath said the Opposition party had moved no amendment in Lok Sabha.

“They suddenly changed their mind and want to move amendments,” he said.

He said the BJP voted against similar amendments moved by members of other parties in the Lower House.

"If they didn't do it (move amendments) in Lok Sabha, I don't see why they should do it in Rajya Sabha. I have requested them to let the bill be passed," Nath said.

The BJP is pressing for a special package to Seemandhra people and has moved amendments for the same.

"There are issues which concern Seemandhra, valid issues. Of course, the government supports all the valid issues of Seemandhra," Nath said.
