Consultation process on the Telangana statehood issue gained momentum with Congress general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad meeting a delegation of leaders from the region on Wednesday, amid his intention to complete discussions within the party in the next two months.
The delegation consisting of Ministers, MP and MLAs from Telangana met Azad for the second time in three days and gave a presentation on certain issues related to the statehood demand.
While Pedapalli MP, G. Vivekanand made a presentation on Hyderabad, the most contentious issue, IT Minister Ponnala Laxmaiah gave a presentation on irrigation and agriculture issues.
