Chief Minister met Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde in New Delhi on Tuesday, purportedly over Telangana. A tightlipped chief minister left soon for Hyderabad and did not take questions from journalists. Meanwhile, seven Seemandhra MPs from the Congress, who had submitted their resignations to Speaker Meira Kumar in the first week of August, were scheduled to meet the Speaker Meira Kumar on Tuesday. The meeting has been postponed to September 30 as the Speaker is out of town.     

A tight-lipped chief minister left soon for Hyderabad and did not take questions from journalists.

Jagan has already declared his intent to support the cause of united Andhra Pradesh and has been supporting anti- Telangana protests in the Seemandhra region. The much anticipated Cabinet note on Telangana did not come up before the Cabinet today although Home Minister Shinde had some time back said that the issue was likely to be placed before the Cabinet soon.

Sources say that this could get postponed to mid – October as several things still needed to be tied up.

Sources say that there is talk of Jagan Reddy who is a Lok Sabha MP resigning from his seat in protest against the Telangana decision. The YSR alongwith Jagan has only seats in the house.

Meanwhile, seven Seemandhra MPs from the Congress who had submitted their resignations to the Speaker Meira Kumar in the first week of August - A Sai Pratap, Anantha Venkatarami Reddy, GV Harsha Kumar, V. Arun Kumar, L. Rajagopal and S.P.Y. Reddy and Sambasiva Rao – were scheduled to meet the Speaker Meira Kumar today. However as she was in Patna the meeting has been postponed to September 30.

With TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu accusing the Congress of “match fixing” and being behind YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy's bail, there are reports that the YSR camp is not averse to aligning with the Congress.

Caught in a bind, the TDP is in all likelihood slated to move towards its old ally the NDA. However no confirmations were forthcoming from either Naidu or the BJP.
