New Delhi: Five Congress MPs from the Telangana region quit from the party on Wednesday to press for the creation of a new state.
According to reports, Manda Jagannatam, Ponnam Prabhakar, S Rajaiah, Vivek Reddy and Surinder Reddy sent a joint resignation letter to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi through a courier.
"They had made the promise, now you cannot go back on the word. They will have to listen to us. All the majority parties had supported formation of Telangana. We gave hope to the people, now that has to be fulfilled," Rajaiah was quoted as saying.
