Hyderabad

AICC leader Vayalar Ravi who is in the state to meet with party functionaries and cadres has attended a breakfast meeting at the residence of Rajya Sabha member K Chiranjeevi. The meeting which went for an hour was attended by PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana, Ministers Danam Nagender and C Ramachandraiah and other legislators of the erstwhile Praja Rajyam Party.

Speaking to reporters later, Vayalar Ravi said that Chiranjeevi is not just a popular leader, but an important leader of the Congress party at both State and National level. He said that the Congress leadership has taken note of the concerns of the erstwhile PRP leaders. He however denied discussing the issue of selecting former PRP leaders for the ensuing by-elections.

Meanwhile, Vayalar Ravi's visit to Chiranjeevi's residence didn't go well with some of the leaders of the Congress party. Former Minister R Damodar Reddy criticized the visit saying that such visits will send wrong signals to the party cadres and will encourage groupism within the party. Damodar Reddy faulted with the central leadership for sending observers to the state and doing little later. He said that Ghulam Nabi Azad had come to elicit the opinion of the party leaders on Telangana issue earlier and no decision was taken on the issue. He said that this should be the last visit of an observed before the Telangana state is announced.

Vayalar Ravi held extensive discussions earlier at Gandhi Bhavan with several Congress leaders.
