Hyderabad, Jan 12: Two ministers from the Telangana region on Tuesday, Jan 12, withdrew their resignations.

Minister for Information Technology K Venkat Reddy and Minister for Higher Education D Sridhar Babu met state Congress chief D Srinivas to convey their decision to withdraw the resignations.

The Ministers said they were satisfied with the steps being taken by the Central Government to carve out Telangana state. Hence decided to withdraw the resignations.

Their move came a day after the state Congress chief had asked all ministers and legislators to take back their resignations.

Earlier, 11 ministers from the region had withdrawn their resignations on Dec 31.

The two ministers had said they would do so only after the Centre initiated the process for Telangana state.

However, the legislators of Andhra Pradesh's ruling Congress party have refused to do so saying they would abide by the all-party Joint Action Committee's (JAC) decision.
