Hyderabad: With the movement for Telangana gathering steam, 32 MLAs from the region belonging to main opposition TDP on Wednesday resigned from the state assembly in support of the demand for a separate state.

It is for the second time that the TDP MLAs have sought to quit their seats in the legislature to press for Telangana statehood after the Speaker rejected their resignations in July.

The MLAs handed over their resignations to the Secretary of the House S Raja Sadaram as Speaker Nadendla Manohar was not available.

The TDP legislators from Telangana held a meeting here this morning and decided to put in their papers afresh and even wanted the Congress MLAs from the region to quit with them.

Sources in the party said, they waited in the Telugu Desam Legislature Party office for more than six hours for the Congress MLAs to join them, but when nobody turned up, they submitted their resignations without their company.

However, TDP MLA from Kamareddy Gampa Govardhan did not accompany them.
