Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ministers Kamineni Srinivas Rao and P. Manikyala Rao, as announced earlier, tendered their resignations to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu today.
Medical and Health Minister Srinivas Rao and Endowments Minister Manikyala Rao met the Chief Minister in his chamber in the Assembly and handed the letters of resignation to him.
They thanked Naidu for the opportunity as the Chief Minister also appreciated their efficient working.
Later, Srinivas Rao said: I had the privilege of working with him for more than three-and-a-half years. I recently asked him about his opinion on my work. He gave me the certificate that I have no enemies, he said.
Manikyala Rao said he learned to operate a computer because of Naidu’s stress on the use of technology in the administration.
Earlier, I knew only making and receiving calls. I was never used to texting. Now, I operate a computer because of Naidu’s thrust on the use of technology…, he said.
The resignation came ahead of the presentation of the budget for 2018-19 in the Assembly by Finance Minister Y. Ramakrishnudu, a party official said.
