New Delhi: All processes regarding formation of a separate Telangana state will be "fully followed", Government told the Lok Sabha on Thursday.
You are fully aware of the process of formation of separate states. All processes in that regard will be fully followed," Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told the Leader of the Opposition L K Advani.

Mukherjee's statement was in response to queries from Advani, a former Home Minister, as to how the Government would go about carving a separate Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.
Government, he said, was "appreciative" of the TRS leader's decision of ending his fast-unto-death.
"As it is a decision taken very late in the night and we are yet to get a response from the state, we cannot make a statement (in the House) at this stage," Mukherjee said, adding the House would be informed as soon as the state government response came.
