Jan. 21: The Centre is planning to conduct another round of talks with all political parties of the state on the issue of separate Telangana after January 28.
Sources said the meeting was aimed at giving assurance that the process of consultation for forming the state was on and would continue.
There was also a plan to hold a meeting of employees, intellectuals and peoples’ organisations in February but this was given up because of the increased tensions in both the regions.
The joint action committee of Telangana has already announced that it would wait till January 28 to submit en masse resignations by all elected public representatives.
“Negotiations and consultations would be there in the process of formation of Telangana,” said Mr Madhu Yashki Goud, MP from Nizamabad. “We are not against talks.”
The Congress high command is working with a three-pronged strategy to sort out the issue.
For one, it is not willing to accept any ‘deadlines’. It would also take stern action on party representatives who press for their resignations. At the same time, it would continue dialogue with all the stakeholders.
Telangana MPs are likely to meet the Union home minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, on Friday as he is holding a consultation process with different political parties in AP over the Telangana issue
