Hyderabad: Union Tourism Minister K Chiranjeevi tonight resigned from his post in protest against the Union Cabinet's approval of the formation of separate Telangana, his aide said.




The actor-turned-politician has faxed his resignation to the Prime Minister's Office, his personal assistant said.

Chiranjeevi, who hails from Coastal Andhra, felt anguished over the way the protests in Seemandhra regions, going on for over two months, against the division of Andhra Pradesh were handled.

He has come under intense pressure from the united-Andhra supporters in the Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions following the Congress Working Committee's endorsement of separate Telangana demand on July 30.
