    Groups pressing for a separate state of Telangana have stepped up pressure on MPs, ministers and legislators from the region who have not yet resigned.

    Activists of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the Joint Action Committee (JAC) as well as students on Tuesday laid siege to the houses of such leaders, demanding that they resign immediately.

    The TRS and JAC have described them as 'traitors'.

    There was tension in Malkajgiri on the outskirts of Hyderabad as protesters laid siege to the house of Congress legislator Akula Rajender demanding that he resign.

    Police stopped the activists from barging into the house. Two young men climbed a nearby cell phone tower threatening to commit suicide if the leader refused to quit.

    While 82 out of 119 members of assembly from the region have resigned, the rest are reluctant. Five MPs, including union Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy, have also not yet submitted their resignations.

    Protesters at Uppal in Hyderabad set afire an effigy of Congress MP Sarve Satyanarayana, who has refused to resign.
