Chacko Rules out Prez Rule in AP
New Delhi, Oct 10 (INN): AICC spokesperson PC Chacko on Thursday ruled out the possibilities of imposition of President’s Rule in Andhra Pradesh in near future.
Speaking to media persons here, Chacko said that the President’s Rule would be the last resort if entire administration fails to control the situation. However, he said that Andhra Pradesh was not facing such a situation. He said that the State was being run by an elected government and ensuring law and order was its responsibility. He said that efforts were being made to ensure that the State Government take measures to maintain law and order in the State. Although there are some problems, but the situation is not out of control, he said.
However, he said the President’s Rule might be considered only a last resort.
Chacko also defended Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s open criticism of Centre’s decision to bifurcate the State. Hoping that the Chief Minister would abide by the party’s decision, he said that the reaction was made under tremendous pressure. (INN)
