The party, headed by Chandrashekhar Rao, held a meeting of its MPs and decided to join the Government after an assurance was given by Congress that the issue of creation of a separate Telengana state would be resolved soon, TRS sources said.

While Rao is expected to get a Cabinet berth, his party colleague A Narendra is likely to be sworn in as Minister of State, the sources said.
