"Every Telanganite now feels that they have a role to play to strengthen the movement," said M Kodandaram, Convenor, Telangana JAC.
"We were the first to resign, even before the Congress and other parties. That shows our sincerity and commitment to Telangana. No one can doubt our sincerity," said TDP leader Kadiam Srihari.
The Telangana Telugu Desam MLAs would be touring nine districts and areas in the coming weeks where it had become difficult for the elected representatives to visit while holding on to their seats. They can now face the people is what they find as their victory.
