Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy took a break from his busy schedule in New Delhi and suddenly went on a private visit for about one-and-half hours on Thursday morning, leading to intense speculation over whom he had called on.
Mr. Reddy started from AP Bhavan around 9 a.m. in a private vehicle and returned at about 10.40 a.m. leaving the political leaders and his supporters wondering where he had gone.
Sources said Mr. Reddy had a breakfast meeting at a five- star hotel, with a group of industrialists and they believed to have discussed various projects in the State . Before proceeding there, he is stated to have had a session with a consultant on aesthetics at another star hotel.
There was speculation that he had met his old cricketing friend and Congress MP from Moradabad, Mohammed Azharuddin, to convince him to contest from Hyderabad against MIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi.
