Three Congress MLAs quit party over Telangana issue

Thursday, 13 February 2014 - 12:50pm IST | Agency: PTI

The ruling Congress suffered a set back in Andhra Pradesh today as three MLAs from coastal region quit the party in protest against the bifurcation of the state.

Adala Prabhakar Reddy, Sridhar Krishna Reddy (both from Nellore district) and B Satyananda Rao (East Godavari), who strongly opposed the tabling of Telangana Bill in Parliament, made the announcement this morning. More Congress MLAs from Seemandhra, who have been vehemently opposing the state division, are also likely to desert the party soon.

The Congress had on Tuesday expelled six Lok Sabha MPs from the Seemandhra region who had given notices of no-confidence motion against the UPA government over their opposition to the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
