With the budget session of the Parliament just 10 days away, Congress leaders of Telangana and other Telangana organisations are anxious if the Centre will resolve the Telangana issue in the session.

The ongoing second round of consultations by the Congress on the issue is resulting in the curiosity.

Many Telangana Congress leaders say the party high command is taking a long time to resolve Telangana issue as it is a sensitive one. However, they exuded confidence that the UPA government would definitely address the issue in a right manner.

Congress MP Madhu Yashki said his party was committed to according statehood to Telangana. “It is a matter of time,” he said.

Meanwhile, leaders of Telangana political Joint Action Committee (TJAC) say that as neither the Congress nor the Centre has ruled out the possibility of creation of Telangana state, they would wait for some more days to intensify the movement.

“The curiosity on Telangana will keep increasing as long as the Centre drags it,” TJAC chairman Prof. M Kodandaram said.

Meanwhile, leaders of some other Telangana organisations feel the Centre wants to drag the issue for some more time to kill the curiosity among people and dilute the movement.

Apart from TJAC, TRS and BJP have also decided to undertake protest programmes to mount pressure on the Centre to take a positive decision on the issue.
