Mr. Rosaiah has put down his papers as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh to pave the way for his successor. Making the announcement at a news conference, he drove to the Raj Bhavan to submit his resignation to the Governor ESL Narasimhan. He cited his old age and huge work pressure the main cause behind the resignation.
Actually, he was facing a tremendous pressure to act against party MP Jagmohan who has vehemently criticized Sonia Gandhi in the local “Sakshi” channel. The Congress Legislative Party will meet today to elect the next Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
As the speculation about the new leader is going on, the name that is coming closer is Andhra Pradesh assembly speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy. He is a man from Chittoor and is very young and energetic to be considered for the post. Born in 1960, he has been elected four times to the assembly.
Another name that is being doing the rounds is Geeta Reddy, a woman from Telengana and is also a SC. But political pundits say that the weight is in slight favor of Kiran Kumar Reddy as he is dynamic and energetic to lead the southern bastion of Congress, which is facing leadership crisis since the death of YSR in helicopter crash last year.
