Telangana issue: Jagan loyalist MLA quits

Konda Surekha  

Rebel Congress MLA Konda Surekha on Monday resigned from her post in line with the decision taken by her party colleagues demanding creation of Telangana state.

Ms. Surekha, who is currently sailing with YSR congress party, met Assembly Deputy Speaker Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and submitted her resignation.

She represents Parakala in Warangal district, the hotbed of Telangana agitation.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA from Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad P. Vishnuvardhan Reddy also submitted his resignation to the deputy speaker on the statehood issue.

However, his resignation is said to be not in the prescribed format.

After submitting her resignation, Ms. Surekha demanded that Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Medak MP Vijayashanthi also quit their posts within 48 hours.

Congress and TDP legislators from Telangana had said that they will resign on Monday in support of their demand for statehood to the region.
