HYDERABAD: Telangana MPs have decided to boycott Parliament on Monday in protest against their suspension and the silence of the Congress on their demand for creation of Telangana state.

The MPs, who met at the residence of Vivek on Sunday, decided to meet again on Wednesday to decide their future course of action.

Seaking to mediapersons later, Madhu Yashki said they would wait for the high command's response to their protest. He alleged that some political parties were trying to attribute motives to their protest by saying that they had an eye on the 2014 elections.

Yashki accused chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, YSRCP president YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal and other Andhra leaders of colluding to obstruct state's division.

Ponnam Prabhakar appealed to Congress, TRS, BJP and CPI leaders to sink differences and to exert pressure on the centre to achieve the common goal.

Gutta Sukhender Reddy said they had succeeded in drawing the attention of Parliament to the Telangana issue. Vivek, Balaram Naik, S Rajaiah and K Rajgopal Reddy and former MP K Kesava Rao attended the meeting.
