President's Rule revoked in Telangana

President's Rule imposed in united Andhra Pradesh was revoked partially today to facilitate swearing in of a government in the newly-created Telangana headed by TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao.

However, the Central rule will continue in the residual Andhra Pradesh till TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu takes charge as Chief Minister a week later.

A notification has been issued early today revoking President's Rule in Telangana to facilitate Rao in taking charge as the first Chief Minister of the country's 29th state, a Home Ministry official said.

President's rule was imposed in Andhra Pradesh on March 1 after N Kiran Kumar Reddy resigned as Chief Minister following Parliament's nod for bifurcation of the state to create separate Telangana.

Rao's party Telangana Rashtra Samiti won 63 of the 119 assembly seats in Telangana in the recent elections while Naidu's Telugu Desam Party, along with ally BJP, bagged 106 of the 175 assembly seats in Seemandhra.
