Cong MP appeals to TRS chief to withdraw resignation
Hyderabad, Sep 14 (UNI) Congress Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao today urged the TRS chief and former Union Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao to withdraw his resignation.
Talking to mediapersons at the Gandhi Bhavan, he said now that Andhra Pradesh Ministers M Satyanarayana Rao and Mohemmad Ali Shabbir had withdrawn their offer of resignations submitted to the Chief Minister. Reacting to the challenge of Chandrasekhara Rao to Congress MPs and MLAs who won seats during last elections with TRS support to resign and face the electorate afresh, Hanumantha Rao said the TRS Chief also should withdraw his resignation.
He said the chapter of challenges and counter-challenges were over.
The TRS Chief said at a recent public meeting at Siddipeta that Satyanarayana Rao, who lost his post during the previous election, had won the 2004 poll only because of TRS support.
He said all the Congress MPs and MLAs from Telangana who won in 2004 with TRS support must resign and get re-elected as they were now opposed to the formation of Telangana state.
Congress Lok Sabha member Madhu Yashki Goud said that leaders of the Telangana Regional Congress Committee who were demanding the formation of Telangana state, when the Congress was in opposition were now observing stoic silence as they were aspiring positions in the ensuing cabinet expansion.
When enquired about the statement made by Madhu Yashki Goud, Hanumantha Rao said that he was free to express his opinion. The MP could not be blamed for making that statement, he added.
