Congress today said the resignation of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah was his personal decision and insisted that the party’s government in the State was stable.

Law Minister Veerappa Moily said Mr. Rosaiah met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and requested her to relieve him from the post after which the go-ahead for his resignation was given.

“Our Government in Andhra Pradesh is stable. There is no question about instability,” he told reporters here, moments after Mr. Rosaiah submitted his resignation to Governor E S L Narasimhan.

“Our Chief Minister wanted to relinquish the post and had met the Congress President. Today after considering everything, the Congress President gave consent for his resignation,” Mr. Moily, who is also in-charge of party affairs in the State, said.

Congress Media Department chairman Janardhan Dwivedi said Mr. Rosaiah was not summoned and that he had come on his own to Delhi yesterday.

“He had come on his own and expressed willingness to resign citing some personal reasons. Today, he was informed that his resignation has been accepted,” he said.
