"Five years ago, at the time of last general election, creation of a new state of Telangana was conceived," Banerjee wrote on her Facebook wall.

"Now, after five years, just when another general election is knocking (at) the door, decision on a separate Telangana state has been taken. It is only a political decision and an election decision," Banerjee wrote.
