Hyderabad, Jan 29 : Amid mounting pressure from Telangana protagonists for the resignations from their posts over Telangana issue, Telangana MPs, who met here, decided to resign from the Lok Sabha even as the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) decided to politically boycott the Congress in Telangana to mount pressure on its leaders and force them to quit the party

During the conclusion of the 36-hour 'Samara Deeksha' at Indira Park here last night, TJAC Chairman M Kodandaram declared that Telangana organisations would not associate with Congress leaders in any manner or invite them to any Pro-Telangana agitation programmes

However, the decision may be announced in the afternoon after completion of their meeting, which is continuing at Mr Keshava Rao's residence here since morning

The MPs are likely to submit their resignations first to their party high command and later to the Lok Sabha Speaker in an official format, according to MPs

Almost all MPs from Telangana region were participating in the meeting

There was no difference of opinion between Telangana Ministers and MPs, MPs Vivek and Rajaiah told reporters and expressed the hope the Ministers also will come along with them

Finding fault with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) President K Chandrashekar Rao's statement during the 'Samara Deeksha' yesterday in which he stated the Prime Minister was worse than the 'chaprasi' who works in Parliament, the MPs said it was highly condemndable

Demanding resignations from Telanagana Ministers, MPs and MLAs over the Centre's decision of taking more time to resolve the issue, Telangana Vidyarthi JAC observed dharnas at various places in the city while one pro-Telangana activists climbed cell phone tower at LB Nagar demanding resignations of Telangana representatives
