Hyderabad: TDP leaders on Sunday accused the
Congress and TRS of cheating the people from the Telangana
region over the statehood demand.

"Both Congress and TRS have cheated the Telangana people.
Congress had promised to deliver a separate state, while TRS
claimed that it will get Telangana," TDP`s Telangana forum
convener Errabelli Dayakar Rao told reporters here.

He said the Congress MLAs and state ministers from the
region should quit their posts and boycott government
programmes.

The TDP MLAs from Telangana have already quit, he said.

Wondering if there is a "clandestine understanding"
between TRS and Congress over the issue, he asked, why TRS
chief K Chandrasekhar Rao spared Congress president Sonia
Gandhi, but trained his guns on the Prime Minister for
favouring consensus on the issue.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister had said a decision on
Telangana would be taken on the basis of a consensus and
nothing would be done in a hurry that will create trouble in
other regions.

"Telangana is a complicated matter. We want consensus,
where all shades of opinion will feel what is best. We cannot
solve Telangana by agreeing to Telangana and there is
disturbances and unrest in other parts," Singh had said.
