Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday demanded the UPA government make its stand clear in the wake of contradictory statements made by Home Minister P Chidambaram and Justice B N SriKrishna over the Telangana issue.

It was surprising that while Home Minister says the solution to the problem of Telangana lies not in Delhi but in Andhra Pradesh, justice Srikrishna categorically stated that a final decision on the Telangana issue has to be taken by the Parliament and the centre, he said.

Justice B N SriKrishna's statement assumes importance as he is chairman of the committee that would go into demands for a separate state for Telangana and unified Andhra Pradesh.

"BJP has been maintaining right from the beginning that it needs a political solution and the Centre should take a final decision on the issue of separate state for Telangana region" Naidu said.
