Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad, member of GoM, reportedly told other members to forget Rayala Telangana for the time being and stick to Congress Working Committee’s decision of creating Telangana state with 10 districts, with Hyderabad as the joint capital.

According to reports, he is believed to have told the GoM to consider Rayala Telangana proposal only after taking the State Assembly's opinion, otherwise new problems would emerge.
