"The decision has been taken after a detailed discussion with all the stake holders including all political parties. It is not a hasty decision. The Centre will try its best to create Telangana before the coming general elections and the Andhra Pradesh Assembly polls," Singh told CNN-IBN.
Singh on Tuesday released letters by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress supporting Telangana state.
In a statement, Singh said: "The Group of Ministers will hold detailed consultations with all stakeholders on these and other sensitive issues."
Singh on Monday said TDP president Chandrababu Naidu and YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy had earlier supported creation of Telangana by bifurcating Andhra Pradesh.
"We have letters of support from Jaganmohan Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu which clearly say that they supported the idea of Telangana," said Singh.
"Hence, their fast will not serve any purpose," he said.
He also took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his anguish.
"Surprised with the turn around of Chandra Babu and Jagan. Both had given support to Telengana in writing. Amazing Political Opportunism!" Singh tweeted.
"Appeal to AP Govt employees to suspend their strike and resume their duties. They are losing their salaries and causing hardship to people," he said.
"Assure all Seemandhra people of their genuine concern of Security in H'bad Education , Health Employment and package for Development," Singh posted on Twitter.
