The Governor has forwarded his resignation letter on the same day to Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy for his advise on the issue. The Chief Minister has suggested the Governor to approve the resignation.

Komatireddy Venkat Reddy was recently arrested while participating in an agitation at Vidyut Soudha. He also criticized the Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy on several occasions for making attempts to curb the Telangana agitations.

Speaking to media in New Delhi, Congress in-charge for State affairs, Ghulam Nabi Azad criticized that Komatireddy Venkat Reddy's resignation is not solely taken on the demand of a separate Telangana state.
