The issue of separate Telangana will figure in Parliament today with Lok Sabha scheduled to take up a calling attention motion on the issue.
The Comptroller and Auditor General's (CAG) report on irregularities in the October 2010 Commonwealth Games will also be tabled, according to the business listed for the two houses.
Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj has given a notice of the calling attention, which will be responded to by Home Minister P. Chidambaram.
The Telangana issue has led to resignation of over a dozen MPs, including several from Congress, from the region and Speaker Meira Kumar is yet to take a decision on the resignations.
It is for the first time that the Telangana issue will figure in Parliament after the MPs' resignation.
The government has so far been maintaining that there has to be consensus of all the stakeholders.
While Telangana MPs want the Centre to stick to its December 9, 2009 statement that the government will initiate steps for the formation of Telangana state, but lawmakers from rest of the state want Andhra Pradesh to be united.
