Posted on Jan 24, 10:09AM | IBNS

The Congress on Wednesday appeared to seek more time over the government's Jan 28 deadline to take a call on the separate statehood demand for the Telangana region in Andhra Pradesh.

Speaking to reporters after a fresh round of consultations amongst Congress President Sonia Gandhi and senior party leaders on the issue, Congress General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad hinted that the decision could come later than Jan 28.

"I don't think one month...When one says tomorrow, it does not mean tomorrow morning. When one says one week, sometimes it is two weeks", Azad said, when asked about the deadline.

Amid chances of protests flaring back again over the sensitive subject, the Union Home Minister had said on December 28 that the Centre would take the decision on the issue within a month.
