Our Correspondent in New Delhi reports: Why did six Congress MPs from Andhra Pradesh flee when they saw party President Sonia Gandhi?   

 

These Congress MPs had a banner advocating a United Andhra that they didn't want Sonia to see.   

 

A senior Union minister explained why these MPs fled. The Congress MPs had got contract worth about Rs 10,000 crores (Rs 100 billion) from the National Highway Authority of India to lay roads in central India.  

 

After getting the contracts, these MPs began defying the party.
