AP governor takes charge after Centre nod, calls for peace

Andhra Pradesh Governor E S L Narasimhan on Sunday took charge of administration following the Centre’s nod for President’s Rule in the state by keeping the Assembly under suspended animation.

Addressing the people from Raj Bhavan, Narasimhan sought their cooperation, saying that the President has given him the responsibility to run the state. 

He said President’s Rule was imposed after carefully considering the situation prevailing in the state in the aftermath of the creation of Telangana. “I will deliver my duties under the able guidance of the President of India.” 

He also urged the bureaucracy to assist in delivering welfare measures till the last mile.  He added that implementation of all the welfare programmes will continue.  “None of the social welfare schemes will be altered or stopped,” he said and did not clarifying on whether the populist schemes like Arogyasri (free health care) and the sanctions from the CMRF (chief minister’s relief fund) would continue.

The governor also warned that he will not spare anyone trying to spike law and order in the state. “Telugus are intelligent and I seek their help in delivering my duties.” 

He also assured industrialists and investors that their interests will be protected at any cost.

The governor also said he would like to conduct Janata durbar to hear the grievances of the people on a regular basis either at Raj Bhavan or at some place.
