Telangana issue: TRS members threaten to quit en masse
January 16, 2008 14:35 IST
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.
