Chiranjeevi to be offered Key role


chiranjeeviNew Delhi: Congress is coming out with lists of candidates for Lok Sabha elections and there were no names for Andhra Pradesh in the first list released on Saturday late in the evening.

The undivided Andhra Pradesh may come into focus after PCCs of the future states are constituted and their chiefs announced.

A lot of exercise for this purpose is going on in New Delhi and the efforts this time also marked the formal and perhaps full-fledged involvement of  Rahul in Andhra Pradesh affairs.

A host of leaders from Seemandhra and Telangana regions met him and apprised hims of the situation in both the regions.

Chiranjeevi also got a favorable hearing from the Gandhi scion and according to AICC circles, Rahul has promised key role to Chiranjeevi in the days ahead.

And this promise comes just when the high-command is zeroing in on party leaders who will be asked to head party units in the new state and in residual AP.

The indications are that Chiranjeevi may be made the head of party campaign committee in Seemandhra. Rahul reportedly told him to convince people on how Congress has actually safeguarded the interests of Seemandhra region.

Chiru will also try to tell people that Polavaram project will be completed without any hiccups that are feared to result from bifurcation.
