Cracking the whip, the Congress high command has issued notices to two members of Lok Sabha -- L Rajagopal from Andhra and Madhu Yashki Goud of Telangana region -- for "damaging the party's reputation and image" through their statements.
The action comes a day after the party issued a show-cause notice to the state's minister for information technology Komatreddy Venkat Reddy for accusing Chief Minister K Rosaiah of bias against Telangana.
The party high command has asked both Rajagopal and Madhu Yashki to reply to the charges against them with in a fortnight.
While L Rajagaopal had adopted an aggressive stand against Telangana and in favor of integrated Andhra Pradesh, Madhu Yashki is known for his strong pro-Telangana views. Both have been threatening to resign from the Lok Sabha over the issue.
