The Union Cabinet will take a call on Friday on imposition of President’s rule in Andhra Pradesh as Governor E S L Narasimhan has recommended for a spell of central rule after the resignation of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy.
The issues of “political situation in Andhra Pradesh” and “proclamation under Article 356 (1)” are part of the Cabinet’s agenda for tomorrow.
As Andhra Pradesh is set to be bifurcated, Congress, which has been ruling the state for last 10 years, is unlikely to chose another candidate to succeed Reddy, who quit as an MLA as well as from the party protesting against the decision to create Telangana.

However, it is immediately not clear whether Narasimhan has recommended for dissolution of the state Assembly or to keep the House under suspended animation.
