Kiran kumar, PCC President Botcha in Delhi for 'T'talks
Hyderabad, Feb 4 : Following the Congress High Command's call, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC President Botcha Satyanarayana left for New Delhi this morning to participate in the second round of consultations over Telangana issue.
The AICC leadership earlier had told the Chief Minister and PCC to be in New Delhi by Monday to give their opinion on Telangana state.
They are likely to meet AICC State affairs in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad, party emissary to the state Vayalar Ravi and some AICC functionaries during their stay in the National Capital.
Besides Telangana, the latest political developments in the state, issues related to the party and the government may also come up for discussion.
After an all-party meeting on Telangana on December 28, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde had said that a decision on seperate Telangana state would be announced within a month. However, a day before the month's deadline ended, both Shinde and Azad said some more time was required for consultations.
Azad had said the party would have consultations with the Chief Minister, state party chief and leaders of all three regions - Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema.
Protesting the delay in taking the decision, seven Congress MPs from Telangana last week sent their resignations both from the Parliament and the party to party President Sonia Gandhi.
