digvijay-singhNew Delhi: Union ministers of the Seemandhra region who had already submitted their resignations protesting against state bifurcation, have met the AICC general secretary and state incharge Digvijay Singh here on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking to the media later, minister Purandeswari said Digvijay has assured that a high powered committee would be constituted to go into the whole issue. She said he also suggested them not to leave an opportunity to express their views in the Parliament.

Senior minister Pallamraju said their resignations were with Digvijay Singh.
