The Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker Kirankumar Reddy on Saturday rejected the resignation letters of 129 MLAs, out of 130, submitted to him over the demand of formation of Telangana state.

Reddy said he received resignations of 222 members belonging to various parties on Telanagana issue. However, since 92 were withdrawn, 130 letters were pending with him.

"I had personally examined every resignation letter and carefully went through Constitution rules. I rejected 129 letters as they are not as per rule. I will call the member whose resignation letter is in order and discuss with him," the Speaker told mediapersons.

He refused to divulge the name of the member whose resignation letter was in order. He said he was trying to talk to that member since morning but could not get in touch with the MLA.

He expressed concern over the ongoing agitations. He said as many as 50 lakh students in the state will have to appear for various examinations and they cannot afford to lose an academic year.

He also hinted that political uncertainty may lead to another assembly election which would put a burden of Rs 100-crore on the state exchequer.
