A light-hearted comment made by Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy sent audience as well as the dignitaries on the dais into peels of laughter, at the public meeting organised on the first day of ‘Indiramma Baata’ at Somasila in Nellore district on Monday.

The Chief Minister said that he was being asked to fulfil many demands as he was the son-in-law of the Nellore district as was being referred to by the Finance Minister in his speech. “Actually, people give something to the son-in-law. What is it that you are giving me?” he said in a lighter vein, which brought smiles among on the listeners.

Mr. Kirankumar Reddy’s in-laws hail from the Alluru area in the Pennar delta near Nellore city and his father-in-law stays here.
