The Telengana Rashtra Samithi on Saturday withdrew its support to the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance coalition government at the Centre.

TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao told reporters that he has sent a letter withdrawing his party's support to the UPA coalition to President A P J Abdul Kalam.

'The UPA government has failed to keep its promise made in the Common Minimum Programme on the formation of the separate state of Telengana even after achieving clear consensus. As a protest TRS is withdrawing the support to be government with immediate effect', the letter said.

Earlier on Saturday, Rao's resignation from the Lok Sabha was accepted by Speaker Somnath Chatterjee.
