No match-fixing on Telangana Bill: BJP

Dismissing the allegations of “match fixing” with the Congress for the passage of Telangana Bill in Parliament, the BJP on Thursday hit back at the Left and Trinamool Congress saying till recently, they were “partners in corruption” of UPA government.

“They say there was a match fixing as if the BJP was part of the UPA government. The Left was an ally in UPA I and the TMC was till recently a part of UPA. They were the partners in corruption,” BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters here after the passage of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation bill.

“The BJP demanded certain modifications in the bill, including special packages for Seemandhra region. The government tried to satisfy us. Though there are certain shortcomings in the bill, it will be rectified after the BJP comes to power in the next two months,” he said.

The TMC, which staged a protest in Rajya Sabha during the debate on the bill, said the bill’s form and content, as passed by the Lok Sabha, was “illegal”.

“We had given a letter to the Rajya Sabha Chairman (Hamid Ansari) this morning mentioning our opposition,” said TMC MP Derek O’ Brien outside the Parliament House.
