According to sources, the Ministers will appeal to Ms Gandhi to stand by the December 9, 2009 statement made by Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Telangana.

The sources say that the Ministers would meet Ms Gandhi and ask her to speed up the process for the formation of separate Telangana state. 

The Ministers also discussed the strategy on how to counter Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLAs in the Assembly, who have been successfully stalling proceedings demanding a resolution on Telangana Bill in the House.

Sources say that Government Chief Whip Mallu Vikramarka suggested the Telangana Ministers would take the front rows of the Assembly to tackle effectively the TRS MLAs.
