Hyderabad: In what amounts to be an open defiance of central Congress leadership, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Reddy has urged both the President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to intervene and ensure that established practices and conventions are followed as far as bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh is concerned.


Finding fault with the government for the manner in which it decided to carve out separate Telangana state and initiated the process, the chief minister demanded that no further step be taken without the state assembly passing a resolution.

As the Group of Ministers (GoM) intensified its efforts to work out modalities for state's bifurcation, the chief minister dashed off letters to President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, urging them to understand "our feeling of desperation and discrimination in the manner in which, the whole exercise is being carried out".
