YSR Congress has found another supporter in the form of Shiromani Akali Dal, with Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal expressing solidarity with YS Jagan Mohan Reddy that assembly resolution is a must before splitting any state.
“Before dividing any State the assembly resolution should be taken first. The will of the people should be reflected by the resolution and it should be adopted by a two-thirds majority,” he told reporters after meeting YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
The Punjab Chief Minister said in no uncertain terms that an assembly resolution with two-thirds majority should be taken before dividing any State.
Even in panchayats, to do anything a resolution is passed with two-thirds majority and when the matter concerns division of a state the assembly must be taken into confidence, he said.
