Hyderabad, August 13 : Congress MLA K Lakshma Reddy on Tuesday demanded that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy convene the meeting of State Cabinet to discuss the ongoing chaos in the State.
Talking to reporters in the Assembly premises here, Lakshma Reddy said that the Chief Minister should take immediate measures to end ongoing uncertainty in the State by convening the cabinet meeting. He said that the ministers should be sent to their concerned districts and be given the responsibility to restore normalcy.
However, if any minister refuses to follow his orders, then the Chief Minister should immediately drop him from the State Cabinet, the Medchal MLA suggested.
It may be mentioned that the State Cabinet is presently divided on regional lines. The ministers from Telangana and Seemandhra regions are not associating themselves with each other after the Congress Working Committee has announced its decision to bifurcated the State on July 30. So far, 13 ministers from Seemandhra region have resigned from the State Cabinet. Although their resignations are yet to be accepted, Lakshma Reddy’s demand for a cabinet meeting appears like a challenge for the Chief Minister to prove that he is still heading the State Government.
