Andhra Pradesh Tribal Welfare Minister Kidari Sravan Kumar may have to resign from the State cabinet on Friday as he was not the member of either house of AP legislature.
To continue in the post, any person appointed as the Minister should be elected or nominated to the legislature within six months of being sworn in. This is mandatory according to article 164(4) in the constitution of India.
Sravan was sworn in as a Minister on November 11, 2018. After the death of Sarveswara Rao, MLA from Araku and the father of Sravan, Election Commission did not notify fresh elections to Araku, as the Assembly polls in the State were due shortly. The six-month deadline for Sravan ends on May 10th.
He contested in assembly polls on a TDP ticket from Araku, earlier represented by his father Kidari Sarveswara Rao. However, that would not stop Sravan from resigning.
