The decision appears to be yet another effort to resolve the crisis — the state government is planning to invoke the Essential Services Maintenance Act to ensure delivery of services.

On Sunday, the Telangana ministers and legislators decided to meet the panel.

A day before, Seemandhra ministers and legislators had decided to impress their stand in favour of a united state. Sunday also saw protests over the remarks of V Hanumantha Rao, Congress MP from Telangana, who said to stay in Hyderabad, Andhra employees must quit their jobs.
