Congress MLAs from Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh would meet on Wednesday to discuss their future course of action in the wake of UPA favouring the formation of separate Telangana.


"Yes, Congress MLAs from Rayalaseema (are meeting)," state minor irrigation minister TG Venkatesh told PTI in Hyderabad, before Congress announced its decision in Delhi.

Responding to a query, he said all issues, including that of whether the leaders from Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra would quit their posts on Telangana issue, would be discussed on Wednesday.

He said the Rayalaseema region has been the "biggest loser" as it had "sacrificed" the capital city (Kurnool) for the sake of Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh.
