TDP fears President's rule in Andhra Pradesh

December 29, 2009 17:59 IST

The Telugu Desam Party has sought a clarification from Chief Minister K Rosaiah on the pro-active role being taken by new Governor E S L Narasimhan that was raising doubts about the possibility of the imposition of President's rule in Andhra Pradesh.

"We are given to suspect whether President's rule has come into force in Andhra Pradesh, what with the new governor trying to assume a serious role in administrative affairs in the wake of the ongoing political crisis," senior TDP leader Nagam Janardhana Reddy said.

That the governor reviewed the law and order situation in the state immediately after assuming charge here on Monday has caused the suspicion, Nagam Reddy, along with TDP leaders T Devender Goud, M Narasimhulu and others pointed out.

Addressing a press conference in the Telugu Desam Legislature Party office after a meeting of the party leaders from Telangana region today, they wondered how Home Minister P Sabita Reddy took part in the review meeting with the governor, when she had  resigned from her post on the Telangana issue.

The TDP leaders cautioned the Rosaiah government against trying to suppress the ongoing agitation for a separate Telangana state.

If the agitation is suppressed, it will grow three times larger and continue till the ultimate goal of a separate state is realised, the TDP leaders warned.
