The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

NEW DELHI: State for­ma­tion day for the new­est state, Te­lan­gana, is sched­uled for June 2 and could be the first pub­lic cer­e­mony for Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi if May 16 goes the way of exit poll pro­jec­tions, re­ports Nistula Hebbar. Modi has in­di­cated to se­nior BJP sources in Te­lan­gana that he would be at­tend­ing the cer­e­mony to cel­e­brate the for­ma­tion of the state. “The fi­nal de­ci­sion will be taken af­ter the LS re­sults as the new govern­ment will be in the mid­dle of a Par­lia­ment ses­sion,” said the source.BJP, sources said, was keen to take credit for the for­ma­tion of Te­lan­gana, even if the Congress or TRS formed the govern­ment in the state. Sources in the state said that TRS chief K Chan­drashekhara Rao was so con­fi­dent of form­ing the govern­ment that he has al­ready in­di­cated that he would want the swear­ing-in cer­e­mony in Karim­na­gar rather than Hy­der­abad, where com­mu­nal vi­o­lence broke out on Wednes­day, and where things could get tense with Seemandhra leg­is­la­tors also flooding the city.
