Telangana leaders on "last visit to Delhi"


Hyderabad, Jun 15: : The Telangana issue seem to be on an intermittent lull but is showing no signs of subsiding. After many promises and hopes given to Telangana supporters that apparently yielded no tangible solution on the demand for the separate state, the party leaders now in what they call "last visit to Delhi" on the issue hopes to put pressure on the Centre.

The Telangana representatives travelled to Delhi on Wednesday to meet core committee members to push for the cause. The predominant Congress members will meet with both union Home Minister P Chidambaram and union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee.

Setting a Jun 30 deadline for the party leaders to make clear their stand on the demand for the separate Telangana state, they want the Centre to abide by their statement made on Dec 9, 2009 and table a bill on this regard. Speaking to reporters legislator Damodar Reddy said that a direct action plan will be initiated if the government fails to respond and added, "We are ready to make any sacrifice for Telangana."

Another MP G Sukhender Reddy stated that they were ready to make any number of trips to Delhi for the purpose and stated in terms no-less, "No package or any other alternative is acceptable to us." There were earlier reports that the Centre may give a special economic package and Gorkhaland-like autonomy to Telangana, but not a separate state.
