"We reiterate our party?s commitment for Telangana.
But we shall fight independently to realize a separate state,"
TDP senior MLAs Dayakar Rao, M Narasimhulu and Pocharam
Srinivasa Reddy announced at the end of a meeting of the party
legislators from the region here today.
The TDP, despite its reservations over joining the
company of its main political rival Congress, had on Thursday
agreed to join the JAC for a "common cause".
However, yesterday?s incident in the Osmania
University campus, wherein TDP MLAs Nagam Janardhana Reddy and
E Dayakar Rao were attacked by separatists, forced the party
to change its mind and lead the agitation independently.
Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party MLAs from
Telangana region have decided to walk out of the newly-formed
Telangana Political Joint Action Committee and carry out the
agitation for a separate state on their own.
