Andhra Congress chief asks party MLAs to withdraw resignation
Hyderabad: Seeking to stave off any
political crisis, Andhra Pradesh Congress on Sunday asked
legislators to withdraw their resignation to prevent
precipitation of the situation.
APCC chief D Srinivas also said no minister would
resign in protest against the bifurcation of the state.
"Whatever their (MLAs) grievances are... it has
already come to the notice of the high command. They will take

resignation," he told reporters here.
Asked whether there will be a constitutional crisis in
the state in the wake of the mass resignation of legislators,
Srinivas replied in the negative and expressed confidence that
the resignations will be withdrawn.
"I have made an appeal. I am confident that they will

decision on the matter.
