'No time-frame for moving resolution'

'No time-frame for moving resolution'

"I have been told by Union Home Minister P Chidambaram that they would advise me at an appropriate time on moving the Telangana resolution. So far I haven’t got any written or oral communication on moving the resolution,” he told reporters.

Rosaiah said he was constantly updating the party high command over the developments in the state in the aftermath of the Centre’s announcement on initiating the process for creation of Telangana state.

He said the Union Home Minister’s statement on Telangana has flared up tensions in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. “The Congress high command has taken note of it and discussing it seriously,” he said.

On the MLAs’ resignation, Rosaiah said: “As chief minister and a colleague, I am really worried over it. But the resignations have so far been not accepted. The Congress has got a system to deal with such things. At an appropriate time the party will deal with this.”

Asked whether his government has slipped into a minority with the resignation of over 70 Congress MLAs, the chief minister said such a situation would arise only if the resignations are accepted.

“Since legislators from other parties like the TDP and PRP too have resigned, I don’t think the government will be in a minority,” he said.

Rosaiah said he was thinking about re-constituting the Legislators’ Committee which was constituted by his predecessor Y S Rajasekhara Reddy to look into the Telangana issue.
