Governor should intervene to resolve crisis in AP: BJP

The governor should convene the Assembly session immediately and direct Rosaiah to prove his majority on the floor of the House as there was a total chaos on the issue, BJP senior leader and former union minister Ch Vidyasagar Rao told presspersons here. After the demise of Rajasekhara Reddy in a helicopter crash, there was a political crisis in the state which is now leading to constitutional crisis, he said.

The governor should take initiative to resolve the crisis when the Congress high command is silent for calling its legislative party meeting in the state, the BJP leader said.
The state is facing a peculiar situation as most of the cabinet ministers who were loyal to late Rajasekhara Reddy have been demanding to make his son Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy as chief minister saying that Rosaiah is a caretaker chief minister, Rao said.

As there was no mention of caretaker or temporary chief minister in the Constitution, there was a need to define and codify the subject in the Constitution as no state in the country faced such situation, the former union minister said.

In the absence of mentioning of caretaker or temporary chief minister, the present development in Andhra Pradesh would become a new precedent, Rao observed.
