Will Kiran Kumar Reddy go down in history as the last Cm to the United Andhra Pradesh? Or, will there be a new CM deputed by Congress High Command… this is the question circulating in the public since yesterday. Kiran is about to start his press meet and is scheduled to meet the Governor to tender his resignation. The governor might ask him to be the interim CM till the elections are over, but that depends on the Congress high command’s mood to continue this controversial CM who had the audacity to go to Delhi and sit in dharna against their decision. On the other hand, the Telangana leaders who have been complaining about the signing spree Kiran has been on, may not accept him in the highest seat any more, particularly during the elections period.
Even Kiran might not wish to continue in the seat as he has made several plans with regard to his new party. In the recent exercise on the new party, about 7 ministers, 7-8 MPs and over 30 MLAs have indicated support to join him in future plans. Another section of Kiran detractors including Botchcha, Kondru and others have been saying that CM should have resigned much earlier. Even Chiranjeevi reflected the same opinion after the Lok Sabha yesterday. What if Kiran himself decides to lie low for awhile? Under the uncertainty, who will sit in the CM seat for the next 3-4 months? Damodara Raja Narsimha, Jana Reddy stand a good chance from Telangana Congress. Botchca seems the only candidate from Seemandhra, unless there is a surprise thrown up by Delhi Congress.
The EC has said that it is ready to conduct elections either separately or for the united state. So, the ball is firmly in the hands of Delhi at present.
