Hyderabad: Having failed to convince the party high command to either backtrack on the issue of bifurcation of the state or at least put the decision on hold for some more time, the state Congress leaders including ministers and MLAs are now working out their next course of action which includes a proposal to quit the party. A final decision in this regard will be taken before the end of this month.

While some are contemplating to join other political parties, a majority of them are planning to float a new outfit. Giving an indication to this effect on Thursday some of the leaders who had returned from New Delhi after meeting the Antony committee said, the cold response they had received from the committee members despite their assertion that the party would not be able to win even a single seat if the high command decides to take forward the process of carving a new state, had made them feel that their future was in jeopardy and they cannot win this election as a Congressman. A senior leader said that they would however wait till the Antony committee submits its report to the party high command. If still the party refuses to consider their view point, they would be left with no option but to resign from the part and float a new party.

It may be recalled that the Congress MLA from Rajamundry Routhu Suryaprakash Rao had recently announced that a new regional party was likely to be formed soon. A senior leader said, the Chief Minister had even submitted a survey report to the Antony committee which said that the party can write off its chances to win in Seemandhra region. “It will be a total rout for the party and none of the MPs or MLAs can visit their constituencies.

The party’s vote share had come down to 10 percent from 34 percent,” Chief Minister reportedly told the committee according to the leader said. Minister Kondru Murali said that they too were contemplating to start a bus Yatra like Chandrababu Naidu.
