Ruling Congress MPs, state legislators and ministers from the Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh on Monday decided to go to Delhi to lobby with the party high command for a "favourable" decision on the separate statehood issue.
The leaders will leave Hyderabad on Tuesday for discussions with the high command ahead of the January 28 deadline set by the Joint Action Committee on Telangana which has demanded that the Centre announce the formation of the new state by that date.
"We discussed the issue at length. We are all united. We have resolved that we are ready for any sacrifice," senior Congress MLA R Damodara Reddy told reporters.
CWC member and MP K Kesava Rao will lead the delegation, which would appeal to the high command to act fast on formation of Telangana.
