The Hindu Pro-Telangana Congress legislators raise slogans at a protest in Hyderabad on Sunday. As many as 37 party MLAs, including four Ministers, resigned on Monday to press their demand for a separate Telangana.

Leaders of the Andhra Joint Action Committee hailed the resignations put in by the 90 per cent of elected representatives of the people in Telangana region from major political parties.

Andhra JAC president Sunkara Krishna Murthy said that they had held a meeting here in the wake of latest political developments in the State and they passed various resolutions. They appealed to the leaders of Samaikyandhra Pradesh to accept the reality now that there was an overwhelming desire for separate Telangana statehood.

Mr. Krishna Murthy said that the integrationists should at least now change the stand and start demanding for the bifurcation of the State in the interests of the people of Andhra. He felt that the integrated development of Andhra region in all sectors would be possible and practicable only when the State was divided into two.

Mr. Murthy felt that there was an immediate need to resolve the issue at the earliest and before it would be too late for the simmering differences over the separate statehood might threaten to worsen into a major conflict between the peoples of different regions.
