HYDERABAD: Praja Rajyam party president K. Chiranjeevi has once again ruled out the possibility of his party joining the Government in the State for now. The party will continue its role as a constructive opposition.
At a meeting held with legislators and senior leaders of the party in his residence here on Thursday, Mr. Chiranjeevi discussed the emerging political scenario in the wake of change of Chief Minister in the State. He was said to have explained to the leaders that it would be better to continue the wait and watch approach over the possibilities of joining the government.
Legislators available in the city including Vanga Geetha, Bandaru Satyanada Rao, K. Kannababu, P. Gandhi Mohan besides senior leaders C. Ramachandraiah, K. Vidayadhara Rao, Kothapalli Subbarayudu, B. Vedavyas, Allu Aravind and others participated in the meeting. Most of the leaders were said to have advised Mr. Chiranjeevi that sending signals of over-enthusiasm or willingness to join the government would not be in the best interests of the party. Party sources stated that the party's stand of extending support to the ruling party if necessary was already known to all. The Congress had not invited them to join the government as of now and they could join only when there would be a crisis within the ruling party, particularly from the Jagan group, a senior leader stated.
Party leaders Mr. Kannababu and others termed the reports stating that the party would join the government as mere speculation. They, however, said they would not comment on the development in coming days.
