Congress may ask CM Kiran Kumar Reddy’s Resignation: Sources


cm-kiran-resignedNew Delhi: The Congress is upset with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and may ask him to resign, sources said on Friday. The reports came after Reddy threatened to quit politics and also held protests in Delhi over the Telangana Bill.

The Congress is adamant that it will pass the Bill that seeks to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Seemandhra and make Hyderabad their common capital for a decade.

A Cabinet meet today will discuss the likelihood of making Hyderabad a Union Territory after differences arose over the capital city.

In an interview to CNN-IBN, Kiran Reddy had justified his dharna at Jantar Mantar earlier this week saying he was trying to prevent his party from making a big mistake.

“This has happened because I continued as the Chief Minister. If I hadn’t been the CM, this matter would have ended long time ago,” he said. “I am reflecting the will of the people,” he told CNN-IBN.

He also said that he will consult his MLAs and MPs on the next course of action.
