Protesting against the Centre’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh, Union Minister State for Tourism K. Chiranjeevi and three other Congress MPs have tendered their resignations.

Dubbing the Centre’s decision “hasty,” the Minister reportedly faxed his resignation. Expressing his anguish in the letter, he said it was expected that the government would consider all aspects and sentiments of the people from all regions before taking any decision.

Senior Congress leader and MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar termed the Centre’s decision “painful” and announced that he was resigning from the primary membership of the party and the Lok Sabha. Another MP, A. Sai Prathap, too, quit the party and faxed his resignation letter to AICC president Sonia Gandhi and APCC president Botcha Satyanarayana.

Anantapur MP, A. Venkatarami Reddy, quit as Lok Sabha member protesting the Cabinet’s decision.

Never before has a state been bifurcated leaving the capital of the state to the newly formed one.

Chiranjeevi sir, we have high respect to you, quiting ministry is not a solution, Quit Poltics and you have many ways to serve people and you can reach people easily even if you are not in politics . We common people are suffering as government does not follow Raj dharma , they feel Raj thathra is the only tool to rule.
