Four TDP MLAs begin indefinite strike

APCC Chief says no minister will step down


The political crisis in Andhra deepened further as four MLAs from Telugu Desam Party launched a indefinite hunger strike opposing division of Andhra Pradesh. MLAs Devineni Umamaheswara Rao from Mylavaram, Chinnam Ramakotaiah from Nuzividu, former Mayor of Vijayawada city Panchumarthi Anuradha, B Umamaheswara Rao launched the hunger strike. PRP leaders Y Srinivas and Y Ravi met the leaders on fast and extended their support. In a protest to the "doublespeak" of the Telugu Desam Party, TDP MLA from Karimnagar Ch Ramesh submitted his resignation both his assembly membership as well as to his party membership.

Meanwhile, Chief of Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee, D Srinivas however said that no minister will step down. He appealed to the protesting ministers to withdraw their resignations. "Whatever their (MLAs) grievances are... it has already come to the notice of the High Command. They will take a decision on this. So I appeal them to withdraw their resignation," he said. When asked if there will be a constitutional crisis in the state, he said "I have made an appeal. I am confident that they will withdraw their resignations. There shall not be any constitutional crisis. This is my confidence". Congress MP from Vijayawada, Lagadapati Rajagopal threatened that he will go on hunger strike if a resolution on a separate Telangana state is introduced in the assembly.

Senior Congress MLA, J C Diwakar Reddy felt that there is some confusion in the statement of the Central Government regarding the formation of a separate Telangana state. Speaking to the reporters, he said, "Home Minister P Chidambaram, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and the Union Home Secretary have spoken on the issue. There is some confusion. We request the Centre to send a representative to clarify the doubts. It will help restore normalcy in the state".
