Hyderabad, Jan 13 (Agencies): Telangana Congress Monitoring Group (TCMG), a group comprising several ruling party leaders from Telangana, today urged Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to help in formation of separate Telangana state.

"The December 9, 2009 announcement of Union Home Minister on the initiation of process of separate statehood of Telangana is being treated as the birthday gift of Congress President. The ongoing now or never mass movement is being recognised as unprecedented by global analysts and historians," the memorandum submitted to Azad by TCMG said.

"Nothing short of expeditious separation of Telangana can save our party in this land, for which Telangana Congress Monitoring Group humbly prays for," it said.

The TCMG leaders held a demonstration and gave roses to Azad in the 'Gandhigiri' style, Andhra Pradesh Congress general secretary R Ananda Bhaskar told PTI.

The TCMG members had given a similar memorandum to Union Law Minister and in-charge of Congress affairs in AP, earlier.
