Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N
Kiran Kumar Reddy today ruled out moving a resolution in the
state assembly for seeking creation of Telangana state.

"The government will not move any resolution on
Telangana," Kiran told reporters in the Assembly in an
informal chat after the House was adjourned for the day today.

The Chief Minister`s assertion comes against the backdrop
of the demand by Telangana Rashtra Samiti and its vow to stall
the proceedings till a resolution for creation of separate
state was moved.

"Legislators are free to express their views, reflecting
the sentiments of people of the region, but we, as a
government, will not move any resolution," Kiran said.

Referring to the no-confidence motion sought to be moved
by the main opposition Telugu Desam Party, the Chief Minister
said the government was ready to face it.

"As I said in the house yesterday, we are also eager to
face a no-confidence motion and give a fitting reply."

To a question, Kiran said necessary action would be taken
at the appropriate time against state Textiles Minister P
Shanker Rao, who has been openly criticising the Chief
Minister and some of his colleagues.
