Hyderabad: Once again the national capital is going to be the centre stage for the pro and anti Telangana lobbying as the top leaders from Telangana and Seemandhra region have left for New Delhi. While the Team of T leaders led by Deputy Chief Minister Damodar Rajanarsimha reached Delhi on Sunday evening, Minister for Panchayat Raj K Jana Reddy, D K Aruna, D Sridhar Babu and others will go to Delhi on Monday morning.
On the other hand the Seemandhra leaders led by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy are also going to Delhi on Monday. Though the Kiran is scheduled to attend the meeting of National Integration Council chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he will also meet leaders of High Command and discuss the political situation in the state. Incidentally leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu will also participate in the NIC meeting. However, he is unlikely to meet the Prime Minister separately to discuss the political situation in the state.
Meanwhile, the T leaders will meet at Andhra Bhavan at 11 am before meeting the party leaders. They propose to put pressure on the high command not to give any concessions for Seemandhra on the status of Hyderabad lest it may lead to fresh trouble. Nothing short of T state with 10 districts and Hyderabad as capital was acceptable to the people of Hyderabad, they will tell the high command. The visit of leaders from both regions assumes importance since there are indications that the cabinet note was likely to be presented on October 5.
The Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde is said to have given such an indication according to sources. In the back drop od this scenario, both sides are hardening their stand. While leaders like Palvai Govardhan Reddy claim that the process will be over byt December 9, the Seemandhra leaders have indicated that they would take a final call on resignations on Monday and get their resignations accepted on Tuesday. He said they were ready to do so immediately after the T resolution was defeated in the Assembly.
