Rajahmundry (AP): Former Andhra Pradesh
Social Welfare Minister P Subash Chandra Bose, a key supporter
of ex-Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, on Thursday said he
resigned from his post on moral grounds.

"It was not good for me to continue as a Minister in
the Cabinet as I was keenly participating in `Odarupu
(consolation) Yatra`, organised by Jagan Mohan Reddy," Bose
told PTI here.
As a Minister, I have some moral values and
responsibilities. That is why, I decided to step-down from the
post," he said.

Bose said he will decide on his future after meeting
Jagan, who quit Congress on November 29 and also resigned as
Lok Sabha MP from Kadapa.
He said Jagan`s resignation was an "irreparable"
damage to the Congress.

Bose was not included in the 39-member new Council of
Ministers constituted by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N
Kiran Kumar Reddy yesterday.
