Sonia summons Andhra CM to Delhi

November 05, 2009 18:09 IST

Congress president Sonia Gandhi has summoned Andhra Chief Minister K Rosaiah to New Delhi on Saturday to discuss the future of member of Parliament Jaganmohan Reddy, son of late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, and his supporters.

Jaganmohan and his supporters have been demanding that Jagan be made the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh following the death of YSR.

Accorrding to sources, Sonia would also be discussing a possible alliance with actor-turned-politician Chairanjeevi's party Prajarajyam with Rosaiah.

Rosaiah is also likely to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other central leaders.

Sonia may also decide on a date to elect Roasaiah as the leader of the Andhra Pradesh legislature party and perhaps also if Jagan could be considered for a central ministry post, said sources.

This is the first time that the Andhra CM is visiting New Delhi since assuming office.
