It's resignation en masse for Telangana Cong leaders


Telangana protest
Hyderabad, Jul 4: The demand for a separate state of Telangana is back in the spotlight. With a resignation en masse in the pipeline for all Congress' Telangana supporters, there are hectic parleys in the background to dissuade them from doing so.

The T-supporters including Congress MPs, MLAs, state ministers and MLCs seem more or less decided to stick to their plans to quit after they felt deceived by Home Minister P Chidambaram in reference to his Dec 9, 2009 announcement.

In spite of many deadlines and meetings that was given to the Centre, no tangible results emerged out of the seemingly deadlock situation. With the wait game coming to an end, Andhra Pradesh Congress (APPCC) chief Botsa Satyanarayana is doing his bit to calm the Telangana supporters who will hear nothing other than the formation of a separate state. He was quoted as saying that the sentiments of 8 crore people of Andhra Pradesh should be considered before taking any decision in haste.

The situation back in Andhra Pradesh is volatile with students and other pro-Telangana supporters seeking valid answers from its leaders. A Congress MP from Telangana, Rajaiah declared, "We are preparing to go to Delhi this evening and we will be submitting our resignation tomorrow."

Of the total 42 Lok Sabha MPs from Andhra Pradesh, 8 have threatened to put in their papers for resignation. Kesava Rao, a Rajya Sabha MP and a vocal supporter of the cause has also offered to resign. Expressing solidarity to the cause, another 24 Congress MLAs, 10 ministers and 10 MLCs have promised to quit protesting the Centre's non-responsiveness.

The Telangana supporters are considering some underhanded move by Non-Telangana leaders as the reason for stalling of decision on the move citing the meeting that these leaders had in the first week of July.
