Andhra proposal

New Delhi, Feb. 21: Andhra Pradesh may be brought under central rule next week.

Andhra governor E.S.L. Narasimhan has recommended President’s rule following the resignation of chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and the passage of the Telangana bill, government sources said.

If the Union cabinet clears the recommendation, Andhra will be brought under central rule with the Assembly in suspended animation. “We have received a letter from the governor,” a source confirmed.

Narasimhan’s letter was received by the Union home ministry yesterday. But Sushil Kumar Shinde is expected to be out of station for a day, so the decision may be delayed over the weekend, sources said.
