Hyderabad: Seemandhra Forum convener S Sailajanath on Friday hinted that the leaders from the Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions are not too worried by the decision of the Congress leaders from Telangana to resign from their elected posts.
“We have our own plans to keep the state integrated,” Mr Sailajanath said, in reaction to the news about the decision taken by the Congress leaders from Telangana.
“There is no change in our scheduled visit to New Delhi. We will be in New Delhi on July 5 and 6,” Mr Sailajanath told media persons at the Gandhi Bhavan. He added that the Seemandhra leaders would lay stress on maintaining the status quo of the state.
When asked to elaborate on the Telangana Congress leaders’ decision to submit their resignation on July 4, Mr Sailajanath said the Congress Working Committee and In-Charge of Party Affairs for the state Ghulam Nabi Azad would look into it and take a decision.
“Seemandhra leaders are ready to sacrifice anything for the cause of Samaikhyandhra Pradesh,” he stated.
