Rajahmundry (AP): Congress's Rajahmundry MP Undavalli Arun Kumar yesterday resigned as lawmaker and quit the party following the Union Cabinet's decision to give nod to the creation of Telangana.







Addressing a press conference at his office here Thursday night, Kumar said he was deeply hurt by the Congress's decision to divide Andhra Pradesh.

"In protest against the party's decision, I have sent my resignation to Congress. Earlier I had quit as MP," he said.

"I have actively participated in the Andhra Agitation and went to jail and spend some more time in Rajahmundry jail.

Now, also I will actively participate in the on-going agitation for the united Andhra pardesh and extended my support as a common man," Kumar added.

The Congress high command failed to take in to account the ongoing agitation in Seemandhra region against the division, he said.
