Andhra minister resigns in support of Jagan

Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh’s women and child welfare minister Konda Surekha, who has been demanding that Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy be made the chief minister, resigned on Thursday.

Surekha, who is among a dozen-odd ministers in the state cabinet campaigning for Jagan, had earlier vowed not to work in the ministry of chief minister K. Rosaiah.

Surekha has said she will withdraw her resignation only if Jagan is made the chief minister.

While Rosaiah said he is yet to receive her resignation letter, Veerappa Moily, Union minister and in-charge of Congress affairs in Andhra, said the party high command did not seek her resignation.
