In Telangana, former Health Minister E. Rajendra has resigned to the primary membership of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). Addressing the media in Hyderabad this morning, he also announced that he will resign as MLA to protect his self-respect. It may be recalled that the Huzurabad MLA, was removed from the State Cabinet a few days back following allegations levelled against him about land-grabbing.
The former minister said, he does not care for positions and many times, he resigned earlier on a call of Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao. He expressed pain on his removal from the Cabinet without knowing what had happened.
