Congress leaders from Telangana today asserted that there was no question of retracting their resignations, tendered in support of the demand of separate state.
"The status-quo will continue as far as resignations of MPs and state ministers are concerned," Gutta Sukhender Reddy, an MP, and G V Ramana Reddy, an MLA, told reporters after a meeting of Telangana Congress Steering Committee.
The Committee announced a fresh round of agitation programmes beginning with protests in all the Assembly constituencies in the region, during which homage would also be paid to those who had laid down their lives for the cause of Telangana state.
The Congress leaders would also stage a one-day hunger-strike in Hyderabad on the August 11, protesting the delay in deletion of clause 14 (f) of the Presidential Order dealing with administrative recruitments. They would hoist the `Telangana flag' along with the National Tricolour on the Independence Day.
