Amaravati: Telugu Desam Party leader Member of Legislative Council and senior leader Dokka Manikya Vara Prasad has resigned from the Council. He sent his resignation letter to TDP national president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday, even as the special session of the legislature was in progress.

The MLC was said to have expressed his desire not to contest in direct elections in future.

Dokka’s resignation came as a shock to the TDP which suspects the ruling YSR Congress Party’s hand behind it as the latter, which does not have majority in the council, was allegedly encouraging rival party members to cross over.
