The tensions, which ran high till the other day, have subsided for now. The charged political atmosphere that prevailed till Friday turned calm.

With the Congress high command once again postponing its decision on the Telangana issue till the proposed meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), which is expected to take place in the last week of July, leaders from either side of the divide seem to have gone into a relaxed mood for now.

Of the state Congress troika, chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and his deputy C Damodara Rajanarasimha have returned to Hyderabad from Delhi, while PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana is expected to be back on Monday. Most of the Congrress leaders too followed suit.

Soon after landing in Hyderabad, the leaders of both camps have once again started assessing the mood of their party high command on the Telangana issue based on the questions posed by the movers and shakers of the party, including AICC vice- president Rahul Gandhi, during Friday’s core committee meeting.

Minister Sake Sailajanath, who had been camping in Delhi till the other day, said they had postponed the proposed July 16 public meeting at Anantapur in support of Samaikyandhra.

“We have put off the meeting to a later date in the wake of the political developments at AICC level on the T-front,” he said. Sources said since the Congress high command had referred the issue to the CWC, the Seemandhra flock have postponed the meeting not to invite the ire of the party leadership.

The T-Congress leaders are planning to meet here on Monday to once again take stock of the happenings in Delhi.
