The Telangana Congress MPs met at the residence of former Rajya Sabha member K Keshava Rao and have discussed in length on the events that took place following the Chief Minister's assurance to permit the march and later imposing restrictions to it.

They have decided to write a letter the AICC president Sonia Gandhi explaining how the state government created obstacles in the conduct of the Telangana March. They have also decided to complain on the refusal of the Chief Minister to meet with the delegation of the MPs, which according to the MPs shed them in a poor light to the people.
