Telangana government issued orders appointing him as a Special Representative, Government of Telangana, at New Delhi, and Advisor to Government (Sports Affairs). As per the GO, “The government hereby appoints AP Jithendar Reddy, as Special Representative, Government of Telangana, at New Delhi, and Advisor to Government (Sports Affairs), Government of Telangana, in the rank and status of Minister of State. He will rank in Article 18 of the Warrant of Precedence, as a measure personal to the dignitary for the duration of the term of the office, without formal amendment to the State Table of Warrant of Precedence”
In his resignation letter to BJP, Jithender Reddy mentioned that “At the outset, I would like to express my gratitude to you and the national leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party. Under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the nation has seen rapid development across all sections of population. Home Minister Amit Shah has kept our nation safe and secure amidst multiple global challenges and I express my deepest gratitude to the entire leadership.
The leadership put their trust in me by appointing me as the National Executive Member, and I have delivered on multiple occasions. Whether it was the 2019 LS elections, two by-elections, the GHMC elections or the recently-concluded assembly elections.
In Telangana, Bandi Sanjay continued the development work and ensured that the BJP reaches nooks and corners of our State. The party was steadily rising and the message of development was being conveyed to everyone.
“However, after the change in state leadership, the party has suffered severely as witnessed by the recently-concluded Assembly elections, where the party should have won at least 25 seats but we managed to secure only 8 seats in the 119-member Telangana Assembly. Even in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, our party has given preference to outsiders who recently joined our party and do not share the same ethos as us.”
“I have conveyed my reservations and apprehensions several times at the state and national level.
Therefore, with deep regret, I resign from the BJP. This letter may be treated as my letter of resignation from the party. It has been an honour working under your guidance.
Regardless of my affiliation, I will always serve the people of Telangana and India to the best of my abilities.”
