Chief Minister calls on Governor

June 08, 2015 12:00 am | Updated April 03, 2016 02:20 am IST - HYDERABAD:

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu called on Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan on Sunday and was closeted with him for around 40 minutes.

Official sources maintained that Mr. Naidu met the Governor to invite him to the function to be held at Mangalagiri on Monday to mark the government’s completion of one year in office.

The Governor is said to have accepted the invitation.

However, the visit assumes significance in the wake of the arrest of Telugu Desam MLA A. Revanth Reddy for allegedly trying to bribe nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson before last week’s MLC elections. Also, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao met Mr. Narasimhan on two occasions recently.

Mr. Naidu’s call on the Governor led to speculation in political circles that the Chief Minister might have given his version of the Revanth Reddy episode and conveyed the Telugu Desam’s charge that the Telangana government had been tapping the phones of important party leaders, including that of Mr. Naidu.
