February 18: Lok Sabha passed the Telangana Bill today. The government unfazed by strong protests had moved the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2014 for consideration even though ministers and MPs from Seemandhra region were in the well opposing bifurcation of the state. Earlier in the day, BJP had conveyed its readiness to support the bill even in the din but not without a discussion.
