New Delhi, Jan 30 : Seven Congress MPs from the Telangana region will be in national capital today to hand over their resignations to party president Sonia Gandhi in protest against the UPA government's delay in granting statehood to Telangana, said reports.
The Centre had set a January 28 deadline to come up with a decision, but it has now asked for more time, sparking protests.
The pro-Telangana Congress leaders from the area are under pressure to resign for this reason.
An Andhra Pradesh court has ordered the filing of cases against Union finance minister P. Chidambaram and Union home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on a complaint that they cheated the people of Telangana by backtracking on the statehood promise.
