Hyderabad: Asserting that their commitment to separate Telangana is unwavering, Congress MPs from Telangana region on Monday said there is no move to dilute the ongoing separate statehood agitation by offering political postings to Telangana leaders.

"There is no move or proposal to pacify or dilute the Telangana agitation or leaders by offering them Cabinet berths or any other posts. There is no compromise in our fight for separate Telangana," Congress MP Ponnam Prabhakar told reporters here after a meeting of party MPs from Telangana.
He dismissed media reports that there is a move to pacify the Telangana leaders and agitators by offering key postings to those from the region.

The continuation of D Srinivas as state Congress president, the possible Union Cabinet expansion or the reported move by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to appoint a reputed Telangana lawyer as Advocate General are not aimed at cooling the tempers of the Telangana agitators, Prabhakar said.
"Formation of separate Telangana is our goal and our activity would go to any extent for that. Congress party is mulling ways to clear the way for formation of Telangana. They don`t want to prolong the matter. Telangana Congress MPs, MLAs are only trying to strengthen the party," he said.
