Hyderabad: The Centre's decision to carve out a separate state of Telangana instead of dying down the issue created ripples in political parties in Andhra Pradesh today with as many as 60 legislators and three MLCs from the Congress, TDP and Praja Rajya Party submitting their resignation to the Speaker.


All the MLAs who submitted resignations belong to coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions of the State.

However, the Assembly speaker is yet to accept their resignations.

The Congress has 158 out of the 294 seats in the Assembly with just 10 seats majority.


The MLAs have strongly decried the Congress high command's "unilateral decision" to initiate the process for bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.


"This decision is very painful for us. Lakhs of people from other regions of the state have come to Hyderabad in search of livelihood. What would be their fate if the state is split," P Venkatramaya, a Congress legislator from Krishna district, said in the Assembly.


Telugu Desam MLA P Raghunatha Reddy said they resigned from their posts as the Congress took a unilateral decision to move a motion in the state assembly for the formation of Telangana State. TDP MLC N Rajkumari, who also announced her decision to quit, claimed that about 20 legislators have expressed their readiness to quit but party president Chandrababu Naidu has asked them to wait.


"The Centre's decision to give separate Telangana is being described as a gift given by Sonia Gandhi on her birthday. Is the state a cake to be cut into pieces and distributed," Rajkumari asked.


Meanwhile, unhappy with the Centre's decision to carve out a separate Telangana state out of Andhra Pradesh, Congress MP Lagadapati Rajagopal resigned from Lok Sabha.


Rajagopal, the Vijayawada MP, met Speaker Meira Kumar this morning and submitted his resignation letter. He then left for Hyderabad vowing to fight for unified Andhra.


Andhra Congress sources said some more MPs from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema region are unhappy and could follow his footsteps.

Sonia Gandhi will meet Congress MPs from the state over the issue.
