Reacting to the TDP’s proposal for a no-trust move against chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s government, Reddy said his party was ready to support the motion.

 “We are not concerned which party moves the no-confidence motion, but we are ready to vote in support of it because the present government has slipped into a minority,” he said.
