West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday night dubbed the Union Cabinet's approval for the creation of Telangana, as a "political" and an "election decision".

"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.
