Andhra CM resigns from his post; quits Congress as well
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy submitted his resignation today protesting against Government of India's move to give nod to Telangana Bill in Lok Sabha and moving ahead in Rajya Sabha, ignoring all protests.

He also announced his resignation as an MLA and member of the Congress Party. Speaking to media before submitting his resignation he deplored that the concerns and fears of Seemandhra people were not taken into account by the Congress high command and also Government of India, before moving on a bill which was rejected by the state Assembly. 

He recalled that it was for the first time the Parliament is going ahead with a bill that was rejected by the state Assembly. He said he has been fighting with the Center since last few months to prevent its move on Telangana Bill. He reiterated that this move would badly affect the development and aspiration of the people from both the regions of the state.

He accused that the principle opposition BJP also colluded with ruling Congress party in this regard. He made it clear that he has taken a decision to resign only expressing concern over the fate of the people in the state. However, he is non-committal on his future political moves.

Union Minister Jairam Ramesh said in New Delhi that the option before the Centre would be to impose President rule in the state after Kiran Kumar Reddy's resignation.
