The Telangana Joint Action Committee has decided to force the Telangana Congress MPs to participate in the Telangana March in Hyderabad on September 30.
TJAC leaders are learnt to have received credible information that TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been camping in Delhi for several days, has failed to get a positive assurance on creation of Telangana state.
Moreover, the negative signals they had received in Hyderabad in the past were confirmed during his current stay in Delhi, says a close aide to the TRS chief.
Party sources say the TRS chief is now convinced that the Centre is back to its delaying tactics and has betrayed him.
He will be returning shortly to Hyderabad and convening a party Politburo meeting to chalk out future course of action.
"If the Centre announces Telangana state, there will be joy. If not, there will be war,’’ declared KT Rama Rao, TRS legislator and KCR’s son.
Realising that the wind is not blowing in their favour and hoping to build pressure on the Centre, TJAC leaders have decided to force Congress MPs from the region to take part in the Telangana March.
A TJAC delegation including former TNGO president and KCR’s confidant K.
Swami Goud met senior Congress leader and former MP K Keshava Rao and discussed the march.
‘’Keshava Rao assured the TJAC leaders that he would discuss the matter with Telangana Congress MPs and prevail on them to join the Telangana March,’’ a TJAC leader told Express.
He said eight Congress MPs, who put up a united fight in the Lok Sabha and stalled its proceedings several times and faced suspension on that account, were being lured by the TJAC.
‘’If those MPs sincerely take part in the movement, it will put pressure on the government as well as on the TDP and YSRCP,’’ he said.
