Former Telangana Health Minister Etela Rajender has called for a by-election in Huzurabad by resigning from his MLA post earlier today. He has submitted his resignation letter to Assembly Speaker's office.
Surprisingly, his resignation was approved by Telangana Legislative Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy very quickly. It is said that he approved the resignation instantly after the Office secretary handed over the letter.
Etela Rajender has reached the Telangana Assembly earlier today and resigned from his post. Before submitting his resignation, he visited the Gun Park, he paid floral tributes to the martyrs.
With Etela resigning from the MLA post, a by-election will be held in the Huzurabad Assembly constituency within six months.
Etela locked horns with the TRS and CM KCR after he was removed from the cabinet post following the land-grabbing allegations. The Telangana government ordered a probe into the allegations.
The rebel leader is expected to wear a BJP shawl on June 14 in Delhi in the presence of JP Nadda and other leaders.
