Respecting the demands of JAC, 15 MLAs out of 119 from Telangana have submitted their resignations to the speaker of Andhra Pradesh in protesting against the terms of reference of Srikrishna Committee members to look deep into the demand for separate state.
15 MLAs are from 10 TRS, 2 Congress, and one each from PRP, TDP and BJP. N Kiran Kumar Reddy, one of the Congress MLAs urged the speaker to accept the resignations with immediate effect. Before receiving the resignations, the speaker talked with every member. Also, he requested other congress MLAs to submit their resignation as early as possible. Speaker will announce his decision by today evening.
N Janardhan Reddy, TDP leader said that 27 MLAs from the city have submitted their resignations to him and the rest will submit by Monday. These letters are given to JAC convener M Kodandaram and asked him to put pressure on Congress legislators to follow suit. Unless the rest of the MLAs resigned, there won’t be any constitutional crisis and this responsibility is given to JAC convener.
We hope that some other congress leaders will submit their resignation by this evening. If this will happen, JAC will manage protests in a democratic style and not allow them to move around in their respective constituencies.
