Chiranjeevi resigns over Telangana decision
Hyderabad: Union Tourism Minister K
Chiranjeevi tonight resigned from his post in protest against the Union
Cabinet's approval of the formation of separate Telangana, his aide said.
The actor-turned-politician has faxed his resignation to the Prime
Minister's Office, his personal assistant said.
Chiranjeevi, who hails from Coastal Andhra, felt anguished over the way
the protests in Seemandhra regions, going on for over two months, against
the division of Andhra Pradesh were handled.
He has come under intense pressure from the united-Andhra supporters in
the Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions following the Congress Working
Committee's endorsement of separate Telangana demand on July 30.
The united-Andhra supporters have often demanded that Chiranjeevi quit his
post to mount pressure on the Congress leadership towards halting the
division of Andhra Pradesh.
