Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy who is opposing bifurcation of the state right from the beginning has tightened his stand and is likely to shock its party high command. According to the reliable sources, CM Kiran might move a resolution against division of state in Assembly which is going to restart from tomorrow.
Kiran who met legislators J C Diwakar Reddy, Vijay Kumar, T Jayaprakash Reddy, Paladugu Venkata Rao and M Ranga Reddy yesterday has conveyed this message to them. This move will also put pressure on Assembly speaker N Manohar who has been working according to the directions of high command. Meanwhile, the other Seemandhra Minister Ghanta Srinivas Rao is also confident that CM Kiran will bring this resolution and with majority MLA support it will definitely get passed in Assembly.
On the other hand, AICC Secretary Ramchandra Kuntiya reached Hyderabad in the morning today and is likely to meet all the ministers and MLAs. Congress high command is also taking account of all the moves by Kiran.
