Sources from New Delhi have reported that the decision on the Telangana issue will finally be decided before January 20. Once this is decided, the Centre will have to follow it through.The media, especially the news channels, have already started reporting about it and have started doing the countdown for the final decision.The president of Pradesh Congress Committee, Mr. Botsa Satyanarayana, has supposedly been summoned by the party leadership to New Delhi for the purpose of getting a feedback of the political situation.

Some ministers here met the chief minister to discuss the situation and the future plan of action. This group included T G Venkatesh, Kasu Venkata Krishna Reddy and S Sailajanath. They intended to ensure that if there are any potential attempts for separation of Telangana then they should be able to block it.Primarily, CPI(M) and MIM are opposing the formation of Telangana while TDP, TRS, BJP and CPI are in favour of the separate state. The indecision on this issue was such that at the all-party meet chaired by home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, the eight parties belonging to Andhra Pradesh made unanimously demanded that the Central government take a final decision. The Chief Minister is expected to go to Delhi for this purpose in a couple of days.
