Telangana Ministers enacting drama: TD

Party MLAs, MLCs and MPs from the region to meet again on January 4


Telugu Desam MLAs defer decision to press the Speaker to accept their

Telangana MLAs plan OU-Assembly march to press for acceptance of resignations


HYDERABAD: Telangana Telugu Desam legislators have accused Ministers
hailing from the region of enacting a ‘resignation drama’ and faulted
them for failing to send in their letters either to the Governor or
the Assembly Speaker. The MLAs, who met at the Telugu Desam
Legislature Party (TDLP) office here on Thursday, deferred their
decision to press the Speaker to accept their resignations in
consonance with the decision taken by the Joint Action Committee (JAC)
of political parties. It was decided that TDP MLAs, MLCs and MPs from
Telangana should meet again on January 4, a day prior to the meeting
of eight recognised parties convened by the Union Home Ministry on
January 5.

Referring to the decision of the Telangana Ministers to withdraw their
joint resignation letter, E. Dayakar Rao and Nagam Janardhan Reddy
wondered what made them change their stand. Stressing that all MLAs
from the region should resign, they said a march of MLAs from the
Telangana region from Osmania University to the Assembly was proposed
to be organised later in consultation with JAC of students and
political parties to press for acceptance of the resignations by the

Genuine demand

They said the demand of the JACs of students and employees’ to invite
them to participate in the January 5 meeting convened by the Union
Home Ministry was genuine. Demanding the Congress to declare its stand
on Telangana issue, they urged the Centre to introduce a Bill in
Parliament for bifurcation of the State. Accusing the Congress of
trying to deceive and dilute Telangana issue, they reiterated the
demand for announcing a time-bound programme for formation of the new
State. Asked who would be deputed to attend the January 5 meeting at
Delhi, they said the party was yet to discuss the issue.
