The Seemandhra MPs on Friday received a severe jolt, as Speaker Meira Kumar rejected the resignations of 13 Seemandhra MPs belonging to the Congress, YSRCP and the TDP. Their attempt to create a Constitutional crisis and to reduce the majority of the Congress-led UPA Government through resignations has suffered a setback.
Resignations of 13 Seemandhra MPs – S P Y Reddy, G V Harsha Kumar, A Sai Pratap, L Rajagopal, Ananta Venkatram Reddy, V Arun Kumar, Magunta Sreenivasulu Reddy, Konakalla Narayana, Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, M Rajamohan Reddy, Sabbam Hari and Kanumuru Bapi Raju – have been rejected by the Speaker. Seemandhra MP A Sai Pratap said that the Congress MPs would meet again and take a collective decision on the future course of action. Another resignation, in the Speaker’s format, will once again be submitted to the Speaker. “We will not accept the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. If our resignations are once again rejected, then we will register our protest by opposing the Telangana Bill on floor of Parliament,” Sai Pratap said.
The Seemandhra MPs have been very vocal in their demand that if their resignations are accepted, they would be relieved, as it is an expression of their commitment to keeping Andhra Pradesh united.
