Ponnam Prabhakar, who was also reported to have backtracked on the resignation, clarified Wednesday night that he stood by the decision to quit.

Five other MPs said there was no going back on the decision to resign. S. Rajaiah even claimed that resignations of all seven MPs along with a letter were submitted to the office of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

It was only after this that Chacko told a press conference that the party is not against the formation of Telangana, He said the party was in the process of taking a decision.

The MPs had Monday decided to resign both from the Parliament and the party.
