Hyderabad: The Congress party had taken objection to the diktats of the Telangana political JAC asking them to tender their resignations on the Telangana issue.
Expressing anguish at the tone and tenor of the political T JAC, all-India Congress Committee secretary Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy on Wednesday said that they were equally concerned about achieving Telangana at the earliest.
“We have already given our commitment to people in the region on the formation of Telangana. Our roadmap for achieving statehood to Telangana is ready and we need not take instructions from anyone. We have a plan of action and we will abide it.”
Reddy said during a recent meeting with union defence minister A K Antony, we were informed that the Congress high command was equally concerned and seized about the T issue. He said, “Though we welcome anyone who supports our cause for Telangana, no one can dictate terms to us. In fact, we have a greater responsibility when it comes to realising statehood to Telangana. We are going in a systematic and meaningful way. We will not allow anyone to ride on our back.” TOI
