Former chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy is all set to announce the name of his party as Jai Samaikyandhra Party at Tirupati on Saturday.
One Chundru Srihari Rao, who registered his party as Samaikyandhra Party with State Election Commission, approached it with a request for change of its name to Jai Samaikyandhra Party. The request was accepted and the name has been changed.
According to sources, Srihari Rao has applied for registration of his party as Samaikyandhra Party for contesting local body elections with the State Election Commission.
But Kiran Kumar Reddy who apparently wanted to take over the party held talks with Srihari Rao and had the name changed to Jai Samaikyandhra Party. The former chief minister will make a formal announcement on saturday at Tiruapti that his party would be Jai Samaikyandhra Party, sources said.
