The ruling Congress MPs, legislators and State ministers from Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh on Friday said that they would resign en masse on July 4 in support of their demand for a separate state.
“The people of Telangana are expecting us to quit our posts for achieving separate statehood. Due to the delay in the formation of Telangana, there is an impression that we are not quitting our posts out of lust for power,” Andhra Pradesh Panchayat Raj Minister K Jana Reddy said.
“Now we are in a situation that we have to prove that we are not hankering for power. Hence we decided to submit our resignations on July 4,” he said after a meeting of the leaders from the region attended by seven MPs, 18 MLAs, nine MLCs and nine ministers.
Mr. Reddy made it clear that they’ll remain in Congress and work for achieving Telangana and strengthening the party.
The decision to resign “has been taken keeping people’s aspirations in mind and it is hoped that the party leadership would understand our predicament,” he said.
The Telangana Congress leaders have been pleading with the central leadership for the last two years to implement the announcement made by the Centre on 9 December 2009 to form separate Telangana, Mr. Jana Reddy said.
Congress leaders from Telangana had recently met the Congress leadership in Delhi and set a June end deadline to take a positive decision. They had threatened to take harsh steps if a final decision was not taken within the period.

This talk is no news to the people of Andhra Pradesh and especially of Telengana as they have been issuing such threats on several occasion in the past and always their 'high-command' made them retract.

Anyway, 4th. is not too far; lets wait and see!
