Congress MP resigns over Telangana

Mukherjee's statement was in response to queries from Advani, a former Home Minister, as to how the Government would go about carving a separate Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.

Government, he said, was "appreciative" of the TRS leader's decision of ending his fast-unto-death.

"As it is a decision taken very late in the night and we are yet to get a response from the state, we cannot make a statement (in the House) at this stage," Mukherjee said, adding the House would be informed as soon as the state government response came.
