Though there is no clarity on what could be the final decision of the Congress Party on the Telangana issue, the AICC leadership seems to be moving ahead to hold the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting to take a final call on the vexatious issue and settle the matter once and for all.

The Congress high command on Saturday dropped hints that it might decide the matter much before the commencement of the monsoon session of Parliament.

A day after the core committee referred the T-issue to the CWC, party leadership on Saturday reportedly started preparations for holding the CWC meet at the earliest, probably by July 23.

The lone CWC member (special invitee) from the state, G Sanjeeva Reddy, told Express here on Saturday, “I have been informed that the CWC meeting might be held in the next week to decide the Telangana issue,”.

Meanwhile, leaders from either side of the divide are confident that their party high command would decide in their favour.

The T-Congress flock held a meeting at the residence of Union minister S Jaipal Reddy in Delhi and took stock of the happenings on the Telangana front.

“We have hints that our party leadership is taking steps in such a way that formation of Telangana will not give impetus to new statehood demands across the country,” an MP said.
