Maintaining that people of Telangana are disappointed with Congress leaders from the region for not participating in the ongoing general strike in support of separate statehood demand, the Telangana Congress MPs will meet in Hyderabad on Thursday to discuss the issue.
“People are disappointed that we are not participating in the strike. The Telangana Congress steering committee would meet tomorrow to discuss the issue,” Congress MP G Vivek said.
Alleging that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was adopting coercive steps over the ongoing strike, he claimed that it was hurting the party in Telangana.
The Congress MPs from Telangana region are planning to go to Delhi to meet the party leadership to express their views on the prevailing situation and the need to take an early decision on the contentious issue, he said.
