Congress MLAs from Nellore district Sridhara Krishna Reddy and A Prabhakar Reddy said that they are resigning in support of the demand for keeping Andhra Pradesh intact.

The development comes amid assertion by the Congress' central leadership that consultation process over Telangana is over and time for a decision has come.

Alleging that Congress is more concerned about its political future in deciding the Telangana issue, YSRCP MLAs said it should first spell out its stance over the matter and consult all parties before taking any decision.

Congress MLA from Kamalapuram in Kadapa district G Veerasiva Reddy also said he has resigned from his post and also from the party.

Dismissing the resignations by YSRCP MLAs as political opportunism, APCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana said the Jaganmohan Reddy-led party should first announce its own stance on the Telangana issue.
