Cong MLAs from non-Telangana regions to withdraw resignations

"This is what we wanted. We wanted our views to be considered. So we have decided to withdraw our resignations," Congress legislator and Government Whip S Sailajanath told reporters here.

He, however, said Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's statement last night, calling for wide-ranging consultations with all political parties and groups on the Telangana issue, can not be termed as victory or defeat for anybody.

"We see the Centre's statement as a part of democratic process to take the views of all," he said.

Sailajanath said ideological campaign for a united Andhra Pradesh would continue.
As many as 80 Congress MLAs, 42 from TDP and 16 from Chiranjeevi-led Praja Rajyam Party had submitted their resignation letters to protest the Centre's December 9 statement to initiate a process to form a separate Telangana by bifurcating the largest South Indian state.
