Telangana Cong leaders to hold meeting on July 18

Hyderabad: Telangana Congress leaders, who have intensified their agitation for separate state, after submitting en masse resignations, would hold an extended meeting on July 18 here, to discuss their future strategy.

"We will hold an extended meeting of Telangana Congress public representatives and others on July 18. We will discuss the issue threadbare and decide the future course of action," Congress MP Gutta Sukhender Reddy told reporters tonight after a meeting of the Congress leaders from the region here.

Talking about the meeting called by Andhra Pradesh Congress president Botsa Satyanarayana with the Telangana Congress MPs tonight, he said they would ask him to convey their concerns to the party leadership.

After quitting their posts en masse earlier this month, in support of separate Telangana demand, the Telangana Congress leaders held a two-day fast here to highlight their cause.

They indicated that they will have to undertake the agitation with others, if no concrete response came from the Centre by the end of this month.
