The Congress Government in Andhra Pradesh was faced with a fresh political crisis when 26 MLAs owing loyalty to YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy announced their decision to resign from the Assembly as well the primary membership of the ruling party.
Two Congress MPs M. Rajamohan Reddy and Sabbam Hari, who are openly supporting Mr. Jagan, and two TDP rebel MLAs, who are also sailing with the Kadapa MP, said they would resign.
This decision was announced after an emergency meeting of MLAs on Sunday to protest against inclusion of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy’s name in the first information report (FIR) filed by the CBI against Mr. Jagan. The CBI has been conducting extensive searches of the business premises and residences of Mr. Jagan and the corporate offices of companies that invested in his firms since the past four days.
The MLAs said they would meet A.P. Legislative Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar at 11 a.m. on Monday and hand over their letters of resignations.
In a House of 294 (one seat is vacant), the Congress and its allies have a strength of 183. The break-up is as follows: Congress 173 (including 18 PRP MLAs who have merged with the Congress), MIM 7 and Independents 3. There is no threat to the Kiran Kumar Reddy Government falling into a minority as the YSR Congress party said its intention was not to bring down the Government.
