Telangana Advocate General K Ramakrishna Reddy has resigned on Wednesday. He sent in his resignation letter to the Law Secretary.

Confirming his resignation, Ramakrishna Reddy clarified that he was not at all dissatisfied with the State government and that he has immense respect for Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. Since he had completed three years of his term, he was making way for another person to assume the office, he said.

Ramakrishna Reddy, as the first Advocate General for the Telangana State, had steered the government through various crucial cases, among which topped the various issues related to bifurcation and Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act. He even argued in the Supreme Court in these cases.

He also effectively defended the government positions on land acquisition related matters, especially on G.O. MS No. 123, although the High Court ultimately stayed the operation of the G.O. relating to the acquisition of land.

The AG is also learnt to have given crucial inputs in the formulation of Telangana Amendment Bill 2016, amending the central 2013 Land Acquisition Act.

The State government is considering various names as replacement for Ramakrishna Reddy and an announcement to this effect is likely to be made shortly.
