Hyderabad: The logjam in the Andhra Pradesh assembly over the debate on the bill for formation of separate Telangana state continued Monday with the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) failing to resolve it.

For the third consecutive day, the house was adjourned without any debate on the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill 2013 sent by President Pranab Mukherjee to know the legislature's view.

There was no consensus among political parties at the three-hour meeting of the BAC chaired by Speaker N. Manohar. The panel decided to meet again in the afternoon.

As soon as the house met at 9 a.m., legislators from Seemandhra region (Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra) surrounded the speaker's podium, demanding that the state be kept united. The lawmakers from Telangana were also on their feet to demand an immediate debate on the bill.

Amid the pandemonium, the speaker adjourned the house and convened the BAC meeting.
