Kiran Kumar Reddy quits as Andhra CM
Hyderabad, Feb 19: A day after the Telangana Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha, Andhra Pradesh CM Kiran Kumar Reddy resigned from the CM post and also quit the Congress party as well.

While announcing the resignation, Reddy expressed his grief against the Telangana Bill and said that for votes all political parties have done harm to to Telugus. "Injustice has been done to the people. Division of states won't help both the regions," he said.

He also added that the way the Telangana Bill was passed was in a highly undemocratic manner. "Every norm has been violated. AP assembly had rejected the Telangana Bill. Even the live telecast was stopped in the Lok Sabha," he said.

Hitting out at the government, Reddy added that they were not given a chance to study the Cabinet note on the bifurcation. "There were irregularities at every stage. What kind of democracy is this? They presented the Bill like robbers, hiding it from people," he said.

Reddy made no qualms about hitting out even at the PM. "PM said that his heart was bleeding over the disruption in Parliament. But the misery of Telugu people won't cause him any pain," he said.
