Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah and State Congress president D Srinivas will hold a meeting with senior party leaders tomorrow to discuss the candidates to be selected for the upcoming bypolls to the 10 assembly constituencies in Telangana region.
The party is also likely to review its poll preparations during the meeting, party sources said today.
Srinivas met the Chief Minister on Thursday and is understood to have discussed the agenda for Friday's crucial meeting. The byelections will be held on July 27.
Meanwhile, Srinivas hit out at the TRS leaders for questioning his commitment to the Telangana cause.
Asserting that he is in support of the separate statehood demand, the PCC president said he does not need to show it off every day.
Srinivas, who is going to contest the bypolls from Nizamabad assembly seat, said he is ready to do anything if TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao can achieve separate Telangana without the involvement of Congress.
The provocation for his outburst is the criticism made against him by TRS leaders. The TRS leaders took exception to the statement of Srinivas that separate Telangana would soon be a reality and that party president Sonia Gandhi is "positive" over the formation of the separate state.
The bypolls to 10 assembly seats are necessitated as the sitting MLAs quit their posts in support of separate Telangana demand.
