Minister for Finance Anam Ramnarayana Reddy on Wednesday exuded confidence that the government despite severing ties with its long-time ally Majlise Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM ) will complete its full-term.

Talking to reporters, Mr. Reddy said that the government under the able leadership of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy is capable of lasting till 2014.

In reply to a question, he said that ultimately it is for the party’s high command to take a final decision over the issue but at the same time sounded confident that both the Chief Minister and the PCC president would take required initiatives in resolving the imbroglio.

He said that he didn’t wish to comment on the YSRC, which was hit by several controversies.

Parrying questions regarding the deadline set by the former Minister P. Ramachandra Reddy and an arch rival of the Chief Minister, Kiran Kumar Reddy, that he would resign as legislator if the party high command failed to remove the later before November 30 and appoint in his place a more amenable leader, he said that the former was a good friend of his and that the party big-wigs were seriously concerned with regard to the personal differences between the two.
