New Delhi, Feb 11: The political war over Telangana Bill just got murkier. The Congress on Tuesday expelled six Seemandhra MPs for protesting against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

The expelled MPs are - Sabbam Hari, GV Harsha Kumar, V Arun Kumar, L Rajagopal, R Sambasiva Rao and A Sai Pratap.

The Congress decision comes a day before the tabling of the controversial Bill in Parliament.

The Telangana Bill is likely to be brought in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Home Affairs. The government is likely to introduce the Bill first in the Lok Sabha. For that, it might seek presidential recommendation again.

The Telangana issue has been worrying the government in its last session in the parliament. On Tuesday, Seemandhra MPs yet again raised slogans on the floor of the House.

Andhra Pradesh chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy is one of most prominent critics of the Bill. He has been voicing for united Andhra right from the beginning and had,last week, staged a dharna in Delhi against tabling of the Bill in parliament.

Reportedly, the Congress leadership is miffed with Reddy and according to the sources, they might ask him to step down soon. Reddy, earlier, said that he would quit politics if the T-Bill is approved in the parliament.
