In view of the resignation of a large number of MLAs protesting the division of state and protests over the issue, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Friday appealed for peace and sought cooperation of all parties to solve the crisis.

Observing that unexpected turn of events took place after the Centre's decision to initiate the process for formation of separate Telangana, Rosaiah said all parties should strive to sort out the issue.

"We are getting reports that students and others in the coastal Andhra region are agitating. Police has entered into Andhra University in Visakhapatnam and is trying to maintain law and order," he said.

"We should together make an appeal to the people to observe restraint. We should all strive for peace," the chief minister said.

On the Centre's decision to grant statehood to Telangana, he said he had expressed his views and apprehensions to the Central leaders on the issue.

Rosaiah said that police was trying to maintain law and order in the wake of protests in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions.
