TIRUPATI: Reddivari Chenga Reddy who was inducted into the State Cabinet during the recent expansion, arrived on Monday at Tirupati en route to his native Nagari constituency for the first time after taking charge. He was given a warm welcome by the district party cadres and officials as he arrived at the airport and set out into the town in his convoy.

Mr. Reddy garlanded the statue of Ambedkar located at the head of the town and later walked to the Gandhi statue a little away to offer floral tributes. As he drove in his convoy to Nagari via Renigunta and Puttur, he was given a warm welcome en route by his followers.
