Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy, the last chief minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, who left Congress post bifurcation of the state, had finally returned to Congress fold.
Following bifurcation of the state, Kiran Kumar Reddy floated his own party, ‘Jai Samaikya Andhra’, to fight the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, but couldn’t leave any impact. Later, he was on a long sabbatical from the politics for four years. Surprisingly, he joined the Congress today in the presence of former Kerala CM and AICC Andhra Pradesh in-charge Oommen Chandy, APCC chief N Raghuveera Reddy, and party leader Randeep Singh Surjewala. Citing the reason for returning to Congress, Kiran Kumar Reddy said it’s only the Congress which can fulfill all the promises to AP that were made during the bifurcation.
Speaking on the occasion, Chandy said Kiran Kumar Reddy’s return will strengthen the Congress in Andhra Pradesh.
Kiran Kumar Reddy met Congress president Rahul Gandhi at the latter’s residence this morning.
The party tweeted today, “We welcome Ex CM of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Kiran Kumar Reddy back into the Congress party. On the road to regaining the past glory of the Congress party in Andhra Pradesh.”
