New Delhi,Dec 14:The Centre on Monday indicated that there was no move to impose President’s rule in Andhra Pradesh and any such speculation is ``foolish’’,Congress Party circles reassured the State in the light of the recent developments after the Centre’s unilateral decision on bifurcationj of Andhra Pradesh.Union Law Minister and Congress Party in-charge for Andhra Pradesh M Veerappa Moily said it was absolutely a foolish proposition to think, when mediamen asked whether the Government was considering the imposition of Article 356 in the State due to the prevalent widespread disturbances following the Central announcement on separate Telengana state formation.Moily vehemently denied that Chief Minister K Rosaiah has been asked to resign stating that there was ‘‘No truth" in the suggestion.

Moily’s statement assumes significance in the backdrop of demands that President's rule be imposed in the wake of the crisis in the troubled state.‘‘We would like to address the concerns of the people. We want to take everybody on board,’’Moily told mediapersons.There was no need to "panic",since a solution to the problem would be thrashed out soon,Moily assured. He,however, parried a question on whether a separate Telengana state would be carved out of Andhra Pradesh, saying, ‘‘I have no answer to that.’’
