Andhra leaders meet Sonia

By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, MAY 9. The Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, tonight met the PCC chief, D. Srinivas, and the former leader of the legislature party Y.S. Rajasekara Reddy, ahead of declaration of results for the 294-member Andhra Pradesh Assembly.

Buoyed by its internal assessment and the exit poll projections, the Congress hopes to form the next government in the State by replacing the nine-year-old Chandrababu Naidu-led Government of the Telugu Desam Party.

Dr. Reddy met Ms. Gandhi at her 10 Janpath residence here along with Ghulam Nabi Azad, in-charge of party affairs in the State, while Mr. Srinivas had a separate appointment later in the evening. Dr. Reddy and Mr. Srinivas said that the Congress was regaining power in the State and the preliminary exercise was essentially aimed to assess the situation ahead of the actual declaration of the results.

The Andhra Pradesh Assembly has to be reconstituted by May 13 since the previous House was dissolved six months prior to the cut-off date.
