Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday continued consultations with parties and leaders from Andhra Pradesh on the Telangana issue, triggering expectations that government may come out with a statement in the next few days.

After their meetings, leaders of these parties claimed that the Home Minister promised them he would brief Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on these discussions and then may come out with government's position on next course of action.

A day after actor-turned politician and Praja Rajyam Party chief Chiranjeevi met Chidambaram, two MLAs of his party from Telangana called on the Minister to tell him they want immediate steps for creation of a separate state.

MLA Maheswar Reddy said Chiranjeevi took a "unilateral" decision by deviating from party election manifesto which had supported a separate Telangana.

A delegation of Congress legislators, including seven MPs, from Telangana met the Home Minister and demanded "time-bound action" for creation of Telangana..

M Jaganatham, MP, said the 30-member delegation, including four Andhra Pradesh Ministers from the region, assured Chidambaram that they would help the authorities in bringing peace and that their agitation would not hamper the normal activities of common people.
