New Delhi, Apr 25 (IBNS): The Union Cabinet on Friday recommended dissolution of the Andhra Pradesh State Assembly and extension of president's rule beyond Apr 30.
The decision was taken at the Union Cabinet meeting which was chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
 
"The decision of the Cabinet is a mere technicality as central rule in a state expires automatically if it is not ratified by Parliament within a period of months. The dissolution of the Assembly paves way for extension of President’s rule," The Hindu reported.
 
The decision was taken following a report of Andhra Pradesh Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan who appraised the Centre of the prevailing situation in the state. 
 
As per the Supreme Court judgement, any proclamation under Article 356 imposing central rule needs to be ratified by Parliament within two months.
 
President's rule was imposed in Andhra Pradesh on Mar 1 following N Kiran Kumar Reddy's resignation as Chief Minister. Reddy resigned after the Parliament paved way for bifurcation of the state to create Telangana state.
 
The Assembly election in Andhra Pradesh is scheduled to be held in two phases-Apr 30 and May 7.
