Rayalaseema Parirakshana Samithi (RPS) is a regional political party in the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The party was founded by a former Telugu Desam Party leader Byreddy Rajasekhara Reddy in 2013 to champion the cause for a separate Rayalaseema state after the resolution passed on 30 July 2013 to carve out the state of Telangana from the old Andhra Pradesh.[1]
