"I'm writing to inform all my supporters and people that I have submitted the formal letter of resignation to @BRSparty...I would like to convey my gratitude to the BRS party for the meaningful opportunity provided & the cooperation extended in my service to the people of Chevella constituency. Due to evolving political circumstances, I have made this difficult decision to submit my resignation," Ranjith Reddy said in a post.

Responding to their entry, Revanth Reddy at a press conference said, "today we have opened gates (for other party leaders)." Another MP Pasunoori Dayakar (Warangal) on Saturday joined the ruling Congress.
