K Rosaiah: Moving from crisis to crisis
77-year-old Konijeti Rosaiah, has been moving from crisis to crisis ever since he assumed the post of Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh after Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, was killed in a helicopter crash on September 2, 2009. First it was the campaign launched by the late chief minister’s son Jagan Mohan Reddy for becoming Chief Minister, then the handling of one of the worst floods and now the Telangana crisis.
Unlike his predecessor YSR, who took a tough line against separate Telangana, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah has no personal view on the bifurcation of his state and would like the Centre to find a lasting solution not a “temporary truce”. He says he will accept whatever the Central government decides and that it is the responsibility of the Central government to find a lasting solution to the current political turmoil in the state.
