The Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Wednesday threatened that its public representatives will resign en masse if the Unite Progressive Alliance government failed to initiate the process for creation of a separate Telangana state by March six.

"We want Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] to officially announce the Congress party's stand on Telangana and also initiate the process for carving out the separate state," TRS founder president and parliamentarian K Chandrasekar Rao told media persons in Hyderabad at Telangana Bhavan, the party headquarters.

The sub-regional party, which had pulled out of the UPA government in September 2006, has four parliamentarians, 10 legislators and three members of legislative council.

"All public representatives of the party will resign en masse on March 6 if the Centre failed to respond on the issue," he said.
