President’s rule imposed in undivided Andhra Pradesh will be revoked partially on June 2, 2014 to facilitate the swearing-in of TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao as Chief Minister of Telangana but it will continue in Seemandhra till TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu takes charge a week later.

Hectic activities have been going on in the Union Home Ministry and in Andhra Pradesh government for division of the State smoothly on June 2, the appointed day, official sources said.

A notification is expected to be issued in the morning of June 2 revoking President’s rule in Telangana to facilitate Mr. Rao taking charge as the first Chief Minister of the country’s 29th State.

The notification will clarify that the President’s rule will continue in residuary Andhra Pradesh till Mr. Naidu takes oath as Chief Minister either on June 8 or 9, official sources said.
