Hyderabad: The spate of resignations in support of Samaikyandhra is continuing. Minister Pitani Satyanarayana has announced his resignation now. He said he quit his post as a protest against state division.
Though Pitani has earlier said he would abide by the decision of the Congress High Command on Telangana, he quit his post in view of the strong resentment of the people against those who were continuing in their posts. With Pitani’s resignation, the number of Seemandhra ministers who quit the cabinet went up to ten.
