Confusion prevailed over the status of Andhra Pradesh Cabinet as an official notification is yet to be issued on the acceptance of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s resignation.
The Chief Minister submitted his resignation to state Governor E S L Narasimhan on Wednesday, protesting the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
Though Raj Bhavan sources and some of Kiran Reddy’s colleagues informally said the Governor “accepted” the Chief minister’s resignation, no official communication has been issued in this regard. The Governor is said to have called Leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu and informed him of Reddy’s resignation.

The Governor also reportedly sent a report to the Union Home Ministry about Reddy’s resignation and is said to be waiting for “necessary instructions” from the Centre.
Narasimhan reportedly recommended imposition of President’s rule in the state that is slated to go for elections in the next two months.
Meanwhile, some of Kiran Reddy’s erstwhile colleagues are still going around claiming to be “ministers” and taking part in “official” programmes in their respective districts.
“Since the Chief Minister’s resignation has not been accepted officially, we continue to be ministers,” is said to be their refrain.
“It’s a peculiar situation. The ministers are telling in front of the media that they have ‘sacrificed’ their posts for united AP but they are continuing to enjoy all privileges and taking part in official engagements in the capacity of ‘ministers’. We are confused,” a district collector remarked.
