Praja Rajyam Party president K Chiranjeevi on Sunday met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah and asked him to take steps for maintenance of law and order in view of on-going protests over the Telangana issue.
“People are feeling insecure. Please consult all parties concerned and take steps to restore normalcy in the state,” Mr. Chiranjeevi said in a memorandum handed over to the Chief Minister at his residence here.
The PRP, he said, would extend all co-operation for maintaining peace in the state.
After meeting Mr. Rosaiah, he told reporters that 11 of his 18 party MLAs had submitted their resignation on the issue.
Asked whether he would also follow suit, Mr. Chiranjeevi said “as a leader I belong to all regions. Sentiments of people of all regions are important for me. Hence, I cannot resign from my post.”
The actor-politician blamed the Centre and the state government for the current political imbroglio.
“Any decision on Telangana should be taken only after consultations with all concerned,” Mr. Chiranjeevi said.
