Muslim politicians and organizations have now started opposing the formation of a separate Telangana state on the plea that the formation of a new state would jeopardize the interests of the minorities. On Wednesday morning, a team of Muslim leaders from the Congress left for New Delhi to persuade the party leadership against dividing Andhra Pradesh. The
Majlis-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) had earlier expressed reservations about Telangana.
The development is significant as indications are afloat that the Congress leadership may be seriously thinking about taking a decision on Telangana and the Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was summoned to Delhi.
