Would Telangana Bill benefit Congress in the upcoming general elections?

On February 18, Lok Sabha passed the much talked-about Telangana Bill—amid protests and a black out of the event on the Lok Sabha TV. The Congress high command went ahead with the bill despite opposition from the Congress chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Kiran Kumar Reddy, who resigned this morning.
