A large number of Telangana Congress leaders who quit their posts did not turn for a meeting here on Monday to decide on taking up agitations.

Compared to the number of legislators, ministers and MPs who resigned on July 4, only three ministers out of 11, six MPs out of 10, and 9 MLAs out of 31 and six out of 13 MLCs attended the meeting, which was expected to chalk up action programs. Several reasons are being attributed for the absence of majority of ministers and Legislators for the today's meeting.
According to sources there was a division among them with some MLAs starting to rethink on their resignations. They said.
“We were told by our elders that immediately after the resignations, the Centre will take a stand on the issue and announce Telangana, but that has not happened. Secondly, Opposition parties like the TRS and the TD are taking advantage of the resignations and maligning the Congress. So, our resignation threat has proved to be futile.”
Some of the Ranga Reddy and Hyderabad based MLAs called on the Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, on Monday and expressed similar feelings. They told him that due to the resignations the Congress’ image and prestige took a beating which they did not anticipate.

T-Congress leaders are really in a tricky situation, now, with the UPA leadership not announcing its mind on Separate Telengana Demand!
