No need for MPs to quit

Seemandhra ministers seem to have a game plan after all. Senior Congress leader known for his articulation, JC Diwakar Reddy said as much.

Diwakar Reddy took pains to explain that elected representatives of Seemandhra are ready to tender resignations anytime against the decision to bifurcate the state.

But there was no need for such resignations now, the reason being that there is a need to defeat the Telenagana Bill in Parliament and state Assembly.

He also said there was no scope for collapse of the UPA government at the Centre even though the MPs from the Seemandhra region quit the Union Cabinet en masse. Hence, if  MPs and Union ministers tender their resignations, it will not serve any purpose, he said.

He also made it clear that there would be no pressure on the MLAs even if the MPs tendered resignations. He said he was waiting to see what the Centre will do with regard to Hyderabad city.
