Ex-Andhra chief minister Reddy rejoins Congress
Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy yesterday rejoined the Congress that he left in protest against the bifurcation of the state in 2014. Reddy went to the Congress headquarters in New Delhi and rejoined the party in the presence of general secretary and former Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy and party leader Randeep Singh Surjewala. Earlier, Reddy met party president Rahul Gandhi. Reddy was the last chief minister of a united Andhra Pradesh before the formation of Telangana on June 2, 2014. He had succeeded K Rosaiah as chief minister in 2011. Chandy praised Reddy for doing “many good things” when he was the chief minister.
