    HYDERABAD: Members of Seemandhra Congress, on returning from New Delhi on Thursday, announced that the party high command has conveyed to them that Telangana is a 'fait accompli', and that there would be no going back on it.

    A Seemandhra Congress delegation member present at separate meetings with AICC functionaries Ghulam Nabi Azad and Vayalar Ravi in Delhi said the two party bigwigs told them that the Central government wants to grant Telangana because it would help the Congress restrict Jaganmohan Reddy's YSR Congress.

    When Seemandhra leaders said that such an announcement could result in massive defections from the Congress and even result in the fall of the Kiran Kumar Reddy government, Vayalar Ravi is reported to have said that the Congress has alternative leadership in line in all the districts and constituencies.

    Azad told the delegation that it was now too late for leaders from the other two regions of Andhra Pradesh to stall the process. But Telangana Congress leaders, who should have been elated over the development, expressed their reservations and said it might be another move by the Seemandhra leaders to scuttle the formation of Telangana ahead of the expected announcement before January 28. "They probably want to whip up sentiments in their region by falsely claiming that Telangana is a fait accompli and thus spur agitations before a decision can be taken," said a Telangana area Congress MP.
