Telangana bill : Sushma Swaraj says BJP does not accept the introduction of Telangana bill

The introduction of the Telangana bill itself has run into a controversy with several parties, including BJP, on Thursday telling Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar that they do not accept that the legislation has been introduced.

"The government has claimed that the bill has been introduced, but we do not accept," Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj told reporters after she led a delegation of six parties to the Speaker to lodge their protest in the matter.

"I was sitting in the House even after the (pepper) spray incident and wanted to stay inside till I was advised by marshals to leave as it could cause harm to my health," she said, noting that she did not know when the bill was introduced even though she was inside Lok Sabha.

Other parties whose leaders accompanied Ms. Swaraj were SP, BJD, CPI and Trinamool Congress, saying they do not accept the introduction of Telangana bill.

YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy was the first to raise questions over the introduction of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill.
