Hyderabad, Jul 25: Telangana political Joint Action Committee (JAC) today (Jul 25) asked Congress and TDP MLAs to submit resignations again, after the Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker rejected the mass resignations of legislators two days ago.

"Since the resignations have put tremendous pressure on the Congress high command as well as the UPA government, we feel the representatives of the region must submit their resignations once again so that the pressure will continue," JAC Convener M Kodandaram told reporters here.

The MLAs must press for acceptance of resignations if no decision came by August 1, he said. The focus of JAC was on Congress and TDP, as the pressure on government would be more if the legislators of the ruling and the main opposition parties in the state quit, he said.

The TRS MLAs faxed their resignations to the Speaker again today.

Alleging that rejection of mass resignations of Telangana MLAs by the Speaker N Manohar was "unconstitutional", he claimed it was done "deliberately with a view to weaken the efforts to secure a decision in favour of Telangana".

JAC leaders were planning to go to Delhi on July 27 to meet the leaders of opposition parties, for seeking support and to urge them to raise the Telangana issue in the Parliament, he said.

The JAC comprises TRS, BJP and several people's organisations such as state government employees unions from Telangana region.

The JAC would begin preparation for agitation by all the sections of society from August 1, the JAC Convener added.
