In fresh trouble for the Congress in Andhra Pradesh, 24 of its MLAs and two TDP rebel legislators on Monday resigned protesting inclusion of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy's name in the CBI FIR in a probe into his son Jaganmohan's assets.

The ruling Congress MLAs resigned both from the Assembly and the primary membership of the party over the issue and faxed the resignation letters to APCC headquarters.
The 26 MLAs, who submitted their resignations to Legislature Secretary S Raja Sadaram on Monday, have been sailing with Jagan, Kadapa MP and YSR Congress President, for the past few months.

Disqualification petitions are pending against seven of these MLAs, including one who did not resign on Monday.
Three Jagan-loyal MLAs from Telangana region did not submit their resignations claiming they had already put in their papers over the statehood issue.
Those who did not resign include Konda Surekha, Jayasudha Kapoor and Kunja Satyavathi.

Though their earlier resignations were rejected by Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar, along with 98 other rejections, the three MLAs contended that their papers still held good.

  1. 01) Resignations won't give sympathy of the voters!

    02) They are now more enlightened on the corrupt politicians who vouch for peoples welfare, throw crumbs as charity on them to enrich themselves at the cost of the public exchequer!!

    03) Come by-elections each one of those MPs & MLAs who resigned, in protest of Investigating the Corrupt leaders, would be routed by the sane voter!!!
